    This dataset shows the global distribution of mangrove forests, derived from earth observation satellite imagery. The dataset was created using Global Land Survey (GLS) data and the Landsat archive. Approximately 1,000 Landsat scenes were interpreted using hybrid supervised and unsupervised digital image classification techniques.

    The Mangrove extent cover map 2017 is produced under the GCCA+ Suriname adaption project “Setting up a mangrove biodiversity Monitoring System”. It gives the current mangrove extent along the coastal region of Suriname, as well as the upper shores of the Coppename River, Saramacca river, Suriname river and Marowijne river. The map is produced with Sentinel 2 imagery of 2017 provided by the EU Copernicus programme of ESA, using a machine learning classification technique using following softwares; QGIS, SNAP and python. An accuracy assessment is currently carried out in collaboration with the UN-REDD program and will be finalized in 2019.
