Description

more
Logging roads are often a first step to deforestation and forest degradation, but they are generally remote and sporadically used, making them difficult to monitor. The Logging Roads initiative, launched by Moabi and Global Forest Watch, uses crowdsourcing and tools developed by OpenStreetMap and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) to identify and monitor the spread of logging roads in the Congo Basin. Volunteers use satellite imagery to trace roads and identify the date the road appears.
