In the spirit of Earth Month, Data for a Cause have teamed up with Global Forest Watch to run a challenge in the second half of April (April 20 - April 30).
For this competition, we focused on the last intact forests of the world. The goal of the competition was to show deforestation trends around the world. We used a very robust data set about world's intact forest landscapes extent and area reduction (deforestation).
It's time to announce the winners!
