In November 2013, scientists from the University of Maryland, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Google, the State University of New York, Woods Hole Research Center, and South Dakota State University published a study of changes in the world’s forest cover between 2000 and 2012, based on satellite imagery that allows resolution down to 30 meters. The study is “High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change” (by M.C. Hansen of the University of Maryland-College Park, with several co-authors), published in Science, Nov. 15, 2013.
