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 December 2005. 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 2.0 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 an advanced alert system that monitors forests over time using cell phones, laptops, and satellites.
