    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. Citation information for the data Prepared by: Observatoire satellital des forêts d’Afrique centrale (OSFAC), South Dakota State University (SDSU), University of Maryland (UMD), © OSFAC, 2010.

    Based on: Global Ecoregions, Major Habitat Types, Biogeographical Realms and The Nature Conservancy Terrestrial Assessment Units as of December 14, 2009. Developed originally by Olson, D. M. and E. Dinerstein (2002), Bailey (1995) and Environment Canada (Wiken, 1986), and modified by The Nature Conservancy (TNC). Ecoregions are relatively large units of land containing distinct assemblages of natural communities and species, with boundaries that approximate the original extent of natural communities prior to major land-use change. Ecoregions are nested within two higher-order classifications: biomes (14) and biogeographic realms (8). Source: WWF

    Total number of fire occurrences, calculated using data from the MODIS satellite (products MOD14A2 and MYD14A2, "Thermal Anomalies and Fire", https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/modis_products_table/myd14a2). In each pixel of the derived map (1-kilometer resolution), the total is based time-series based on 8-daily tiles, one for each MODIS product. Fire occurrence is recorded if it occurs at least in one of the two products. Each time-series step is based on 9 MODIS tiles: (name,lonmin, latmin, lonmax, latmax): 'h19v08',1111950.519667,1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-0.000000; 'h19v09',1111950.519667,-0.000000,2223901.039333,-1111950.519667; 'h19v10',1111950.519667,-1111950.519667,2223901.039333,-2223901.039333; 'h20v08',2223901.039333,1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-0.000000; 'h20v09',2223901.039333,-0.000000,3335851.559000,-1111950.519667; 'h20v10',2223901.039333,-1111950.519667,3335851.559000,-2223901.039333; 'h21v08',3335851.559000,1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-0.000000; 'h21v09',3335851.559000,-0.000000,4447802.078667,-1111950.519667; 'h21v10',3335851.559000,-1111950.519667,4447802.078667,-2223901.039333; The initial maps derived from MODIS products were concatenated, re-projected, and converted to uint8. In addition, only the data within the DRC borders were retained.
