IFL mapping team

An alliance of research and non-governmental ecological organizations known as the IFL Mapping Team is constantly improving and updating the Intact Forest Landscapes dataset. The following organizations contributed to the year 2000 IFL mapping and 2000-2013 map update:




Greenpeace

Created the original IFL concept together with WRI and lead the mapping initiative



Global Forest Watch, a network initiated by the World Resources Institute

Created the original IFL concept together with Greenpeace, supported map production, update, and presentation



Transparent World

Performed IFL mapping for extensive regions



The Global Land Analysis and Discovery (GLAD) laboratory in the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland

Coordinate IFL mapping and validation



WWF Russia

Supported the IFL map update




Luonto Liitto (Finnish Nature League), Forest Watch Indonesia, and other regional NGO

Provided local map validation and feedback



We greatly appreciate help from remote sensing data interpretation specialists, GIS technicians and regional experts who provided invaluable knowledge and assistance in the development and validation of the IFL dataset.
