Non Woody Disturbance 2020

This layer shows non-woody vegetation change based on the analysis of multi-date Sentinel2 and Planet Maps imagery for 2020 (circa January 1-December 31, 2020)

Non-woody change is detected though a combination of automated and manual interpretation of the differences between images captured during the year.

The non-woody vegetation change is mapped using the NWD (non-woody disturbance) method which applies a visual interpretation of multiple images before and during 2020 by experienced image interpretation staff. Landcover classes reflect the interpreted cause of non-woody vegetation change.
