Fires monitoring in drained peatlands in Russia

Map was created as a monitoring and fieldwork tool for Russian Fires Fighters teams support. Each 3 hours fire hotspots automatically are added to the map if they appear near drained peatlands.

Near real-time global hotspots

This map shows clusters of hotspots of the day (last 24 hours) provided by VIIRS sensor on Suomi-NPP satellite with a spatial resolution of 375 m. Each red dot represents a center of a 1 km area in radius, with more than 3 detected thermal anomalies. In real life a hotspot typically means fire, although occasionally it can be any thermal anomalies, such as lava or gas flares (refineries, oil rigs, etc). Such map doesn’t show reasons of fires but almost all of them are man-made (exceptionally they could be caused by dry lightning, volcano or meteorite).

Intact Forest Landscapes worldwide

IFLs have high conservation value and are critical for stabilizing terrestrial carbon storage, harboring biodiversity, regulating hydrological regimes, and providing other ecosystem functions. The first global IFL map was prepared in 2006 (for circa 2000), which we updated in 2014 (for circa 2013) and in 2017.

Potential Primary Forests Map of Romania

Cataloging a forest as “Primary” can only be done in the field studies, however an estimation of the location and extent of these forests can be done using GIS and remote sensing techniques. The purpose of this first analysis based on Sentinel-2 multispectral satellite images is to evaluate the state of the forests, in order to eliminate the degraded areas in order to define and create an hierarchy for the next stages of documentation and final ground evaluation.

Interactive map “WHAT DOES MOSCOW BREATHE?”

Our map is a tool which helps you find out the average air pollution figures for any hour, day or another period of time since July 5, 2017. Using the map, you can see how the concentration of any of the 15 pollutants changes over the course of the day as well as check at what hours and in what areas of the city the air is most polluted.

U.S. hazardous liquids pipelines spills

A new analysis from Greenpeace USA finds that the three companies proposing to build tar sands pipelines have a legacy of pipeline spills, and that tar sands pipelines pose a threat to water resources.

Greenpeace offices worldwide

Map of Greenpeace offices worldwide. It’s used on webpages of Greenpeace national offices and website of Greenpeace International.

Amazon Reef and oil drilling treats

This coms material aims to discover, thanks to a dynamic mapping tool, Total’s ambitions to drill off the coast of Brazil and the risks associated with this project. It allows our audiences to understand and locate the issues and the various impacts this industrial project could have on local population and natural habitats.

Fire assessment by region in Russia 2017

The experts of Greenpeace Russia analyzed fires. This map shows how many fires occurred during spring 2017. They assessed whether there were more or fewer fires in each region in comparison with the years before the banning of grass fires. Plus predictions for next summer.

China Primary Forest data platform

The “Nature Guardian” data platform is an GIS information sharing platform that is produced by Greenpeace, and is open to the public for free. Greenpeace collaborated with academic institutions and used remote sensing, geographic information systems, and global positioning system technology to draw the most complete map of China’s primary forest for the first time. In addition, the platform also contains a large number of existing information on the distribution of forests in China.

Stand Replacement Return Intervals in northern forests 2000-2013

Greenpeace Russia has produced a map of stand replacement return intervals in the world’s northern forests (north of 40º northern latitude), which helps to evaluate whether recent forest management (at the scale of one hundred thousand ha*) may lead to forest depletion, also taking into account actual forest losses due to natural or semi-natural stand-replacement events.

Protecting forests & peatlands in Indonesia

In 2015, Indonesia suffered the worst forest fires this century, fuelled by decades of deforestation and peatland drainage. In their wake, President Joko Widodo announced new plans to protect and restore these areas. To aid this bold ambition, Greenpeace has prepared this interactive map which makes publicly available the most detailed company concession information and how it relates to peatlands, fire hotspots and deforestation alerts.

Fire return intervals in the world’s northern forests

Map of estimated fire return intervals in forests north latitude 40°. This is an important indicator of the role of fire in forest landscapes. It shows how soon (on avarage) fire returns to the same place, and is the inverse value to the average annual burned area.
