The Global Forest Watch API allows developers to retrieve information on forest change measures, including cover loss, tree cover gain, and disturbances. Specific data that developers can retrieve includes University of Maryland tree cover loss & gain, FORMA (FORest Monitoring for Action) alerts, IMAZON SAD (Deforestation Alert System) alerts, QUICC (Quarterly Indicator of Cover Change) alerts, and NASA active fires. This API is currently in Beta.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
