High-resolution and cloud-free imagery are efficiently used to create terrain, road network, slope steepness, forest cover and forest health maps.
OpenForests’ web-map has been been a fantastic tool to visualize our reforestation project El Silencio. It allows us to present the reserve to our donors in an interactive way, and to raise funds for its expansion.
The interactive map is our major storytelling tool, providing our stakeholders deep insight into our tree planting project in Indonesia. We have reached an unprecedented level of transparency, as we publish our entire monitoring data on the map, from tree measurements to plot boundaries and drone imagery for hundreds of planting areas.
The imagery provided by OpenForests is far superior to satellite imagery and has given us a fine-grained understanding of land use trends in the areas where we work. The Project Explorer web-map has proved to be an invaluable tool for communicating our work to donors, the public, and most importantly the communities we work with. We now run all of our strategic communications through Project Explorer including Social Media posts, project stories, media content, maps, and project documents.
