We launched Collection 6 (1985-2020)

Highlights

REVIEWED HISTORICAL SERIES

MapBiomas Collection 6 data show the 36 years (1985 to 2020) of Brazil's annual land cover and use maps on a 30 m scale with improvements in accuracy in the biomes and new classes of agriculture. The new limit of biomes on a scale of 1:250,000 from IBGE has already been used and has 25 mapped classes.

DEFORESTATION AND SECONDARY VEGETATION 

Deforestation and secondary vegetation growth data for all Brazilian biomes from 1988 to 2018, including classification between native vegetation types and successional stage - primary or secondary native vegetation.

MINING INFORMATION

New data published on the evolution of industrial mining and mining areas from 1985 to 2020.

IRRIGATION AND GRASSLAND QUALITY

Check out new features and layers of information, such as the evolution of the irrigation area and the evaluation of pasture quality in Brazil.

THE IMPACT OF FIRE

Data from Collection 1 of MapBiomas Fogo present the impacts of fire on the national territory over 36 years (1985 and 2020). In each of these years, Brazil burned an area larger than that of England: 150,957 km² per year, or 1.8% of the country. The accumulated result for the period reaches practically one fifth of the national territory: 1,672,142 km², or 19.6% of Brazil, with 65% of the total burned area being native vegetation.

WATER SURFACE REDUCTION

Where is the water that was here? Data from Collection 1 of MapBiomas Água presents the analysis of satellite images of the entire national territory between 1985 and 2020 and indicates a clear trend of loss of water surface in all hydrographic regions, in all biomes of the country.
