Dr Mark Mulligan

" A picture is worth a thousand words " is one phrase many of us are familiar with. This proverb most certainly applies to this KML, which provides a visually impacting set of overlays to illustrate deforestation worldwide. Changes in tree cover from 2000 - 2005 can be explored through animated overlays to show which areas are being worst hit.

Note that some of the data may take several moments to load, but once loaded offers us all an unprecedented insight into the changes taking place on our planet.
