Jul 6, 2021, 4:00 AM

This report presents the new annual series of use and land cover maps of the Venezuelan Amazon for the period 2000-2020, summarizing the trends of the changes that have taken place in the region in recent years and identifying the main drivers of these changes.

This information comes from the effort to improve the precision of the data corresponding to Venezuela for the Collection 2 of MapBiomas Amazonia (1985-2018), adapting them to a more detailed legend and correcting some mapping inaccuracies, in addition to the incorporation of the years 2019 and 2020 in the time series.

Additionally, we had the support of a group of six experts with extensive experience in the region, as well as in the generation of supplementary information by our team.

You can check the report (in Spanish) in our website.
