    Exploratory Inventory (EI) undertaken when a reserve is first being brought under management or when management is being reintroduced after a lapse of many years to get a feel of what exists therein.It is a low intensity inventory (about 1%) designed for preliminary management information that uses fixed-size strata (typically 1 km2) called blocks. Two randomly placed transects are established within each block. Circular sample plots are evenly placed along lines typically 100 meters. Each sample plots has an area of 500 m2 and a radius of 12.6 meters with a nested ¼ plot sub-sample. On the main sample plot, trees down of diameter at breast height (dbh) equal or greater than 20 cm measured while on the sub-plot trees with dbh equal or greater 10 cm but less than 20 cm measured. - These datasets were produced using a timeseries anlysis to obtain forest change including degradation for the respective years.

    The dataset is based on the "Atlas of forest cover and change 2000-2010 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo”, produced as a part of the OSFAC initiative “Monitoring the forests of Central Africa using remotely sensed data sets” (FACET in French). The FACET forest classification provides a thematic simple map of relatively few forest cover types. Mapping the occurrence and type of forest cover change is the first step in identifying and analyzing the drivers of deforestation such as agriculture, logging and charcoal production.
