Ji-Paraná Land Use Data Over Time

The Amazon has undergone major transformations throughout the past three decades (1985 - 2018). Working closely with their Brazilian counterparts, NASA scientists have mapped the entire country of Brazil to show different kinds of land use throughout the country. This data is based on the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) through the MapBiomas project.

As part of this research, we look at the general area around the town of Ji-Paraná and show how the land use changed from 1985 to 2018. 2019 fire data is also used to show controlled burns in order to clear cut forest areas for other use.
