Real time deforestation alerts

Real time deforestation alerts

I’ve made a Twitter bot that updates itself with daily* deforestation data. @ForestWatchBot. Please give it a follow to make it more recommendable by Twitter algos.

It works thanks to Global Forest Watch API and GLAD lab at Maryland University. Deforestation is detected and calculated from high resolution satellite images with an updation rate of ~4 days, so alerts are in near real time.

Maybe it’ll be updated to be at other social media sites than Twitter (as well as to display maps, graphs or other info), but for now it’s only there.

PS: I do not profit in any way from this and all of the code is open source. Just posting for awareness.
