Build Status

What is FORMA?

The Forest Monitoring for Action (FORMA) project provides free and open forest clearing alert data derived from MODIS satellite imagery every 16 days beginning in 2006. FORMA is a project of World Resources Institute and was developed by the Center for Global Development.

Global Forest Watch

FORMA data can be seen in action through the Global Forest Watch initiative, a collaboration between the World Resources Institute, Center for Global Development, Vizzuality, Google, University of Maryland, and Imazon. It's a project that brings transparency to forest conservation through early-warning alerting and long-term monitoring systems.

About the software

The FORMA software is written in the Clojure programming language and rides on Cascading and Cascalog for processing "Big Data" on top of Hadoop using MapReduce.
