In collaboration with the University of Alabama’s SpecLab, INOGO will be updating INOGO Mapas 2012 with INOGO Mapas 2015. INOGO Mapas 2012 used Rapid Eye satellite imagery to conduct an in-depth analysis of land use and land cover at a resolution of 5x5m. INOGO Mapas 2015 will use new satellite imagery from early 2015 in order to update the land use and land cover maps. A report – anticipated for early 2016 – will accompany the maps, detailing the changes in land use and land cover observed, as well as potential reasons for these changes.
