The tropical dry forests of the Gran Chaco region in Paraguay, Argentina, and Bolivia have become a hotspot of deforestation as cattle ranching and soy expand into the area. Deforestation monitoring in the Gran Chaco has been carried out by the non-profit Guyra Paraguay since 2011, using 30-meter resolution Landsat images for the 55 scenes that cover the Gran Chaco. The interpretation of forest change areas is done through multi-temporal analysis, which uses a base image from the last two years and a current image from the study month. Analysts use visual interpretation techniques to identify deforestation, including elements of tone, shape, size, texture, pattern, shadow, and context.
