In preparation for the Global Landscape Forum in Lima this past weekend, the Moabi team just revamped much of our site cartography. We were aiming for a slightly simplier, cleaner set of map layers to better highlight our map data. Check them out on the maps page and tell us what you think. Some Highlights:

Base Layer

We rebuild the entire base layer with new styles and data. In addition to the lighter color palette, we added new labels and administrative data, including:

  • new admin boundaries for Provinces, Districts, and Territories.
  • over 3000 new place names, from cities to villages
  • labels for rivers and water bodies

Era Layers

With the help of WildlifeWorks, we’ve added six new layers of data relating to the Era REDD+ project. This includes data on:

  • forest stratification
  • project zones
  • clan boundaries
  • education projects
  • community projects
  • agriculture projects

New Iconography

As part of this big push on cartography, we will be swapping in new icons for the hydropower and artisanal logging layers.
