TropiSCO Southeast Asia

Accounting for half of the world's forests, the rainforest is under serious threat. In 2019, the equivalent of a soccer stadium is destroyed every two seconds. TropiSCO aims to map deforested areas in near-real time and to publish the information so that local actors can intervene, alert public opinion, and account for lost surfaces.

Experimented on three continents (Africa, Southeast Asia, South America), the objective of the TropiSCO project is to monitor tropical deforestation on a global scale using radar images from the Sentinel-1 satellite.

These data will have many uses such as fighting against illegal logging and mining, against illegal agricultural crops and wildlife trafficking, but also provide easily usable data and statistics.
