Broadback River Watershed and adjacent area: Interactive Map
(2016-10-20) Global Forest Watch Canada (GFWC) is pleased to release an interactive map of the results of our analyses of Landsat satellite imagery to map anthropogenic (human) disturbance from 1980-2015 in the Broadback River watershed and adjacent area to the south and east. Results show a steady increase in the presence of industrial activities, especially related to the forest industry and the roads required to undertake logging. Users can turn layers on and off to examine the location of forestry tenures/management units, human disturbances, and buffered disturbances.
Turn layers on and off in the visible layers tool in the map itself. You can explore where forest tenures are, as well as look at just linear or area disturbances, or both, or the 500 meter buffered combined layer.
