Forests of Borneo

The application shows how the native forests of Borneo have been impacted by selective logging, fire, and conversion to plantations at unprecedented scales throughout 40 years since industrial-scale extractive industries began in the early 1970s.

CIFOR’s research is based on LANDSAT images, ALOS-PALSAR, MODIS-based tree cover maps and the results are also part of the paper: Four decades of forest persistence, clearance and logging on Borneo, published in 2014.
