Global Forest Watch | Monitoring Forests in Near Real Time

Global Forest Watch (GFW) is a dynamic online forest monitoring and alert system that empowers people everywhere to better manage forests. Visit GFW at globalforestwatch.org

For the first time, Global Forest Watch unites satellite technology, open data, and crowdsourcing to guarantee access to timely and reliable information about forests.

Armed with the latest information from Global Forest Watch, governments, businesses and communities can halt forest loss.

Global Forest Watch was created by the World Resources Institute with over 40 partners, including: Google, ESRI, the University of Maryland, Imazon, Center for Global Development, and the U.N.
