Description

more
Land cover maps for 2005 were developed using the four vegetation classes used under the RSPO’s Remediation and Compensation Procedures (RACP): 1. Structurally complex forest with uneven or multi-layered canopy, 2. Structurally simplified or degraded forest with even or single-layered canopy, 3. Multi-species agroforestry and 4. Highly modified and/or degraded areas retaining little or no natural, structurally intact vegetation.Indicative forest cover layer was derived initially from Hansen tree cover (minimum canopy 70% in Ghana, 80% in Thailand, 90% in Honduras) combined with Landsat data (minimum canopy 70% in Ghana, 80% in Thailand and 95% in Honduras), which in turn were refined further with reference to country-specific forest layers (USGS dense forest cover, Ghana; REDD/CCAD-GIZ, Honduras; SAVGIS 2000 forest cover, Thailand). Sub-classes of forest vegetation were then differentiated using Landsat based supervised classification with on-screen manual corrections. Non-forest areas were derived by comparing Hansen tree cover loss (through 2004) with areas defined as open land in the 2005 Landsat data. Areas identified as plantation (GlobCover, Ghana; REDD/CCAD-GIZ, Honduras; ISCGM land cover, Thailand) were used to mask the tree cover layer to generate the final resulting land cover layer for 2005.
