DETER uses satellite surveillance to detect and report changes in forest cover across the Legal Amazon and the Cerrado biome. Each data point consists of a warning, describing which type of change has affected a certain area of forest at a given date. Broadly speaking, it makes a distinction between events of deforestation, degradation and logging. The data extracted here spans from 2016 onward in the Amazon, and from 2018 onward in the Cerrado.
