This dataset depicts Belize's national mangrove cover for the period November 1980 through February 2017, based on the ~1990 baseline established by Simon Zisman. The dataset was developed by using satellite imagery to detect where how mangrove cover has changed between 1980 and 2017. The source data for this effort include Landsat-3 Multispectral Scanner (MSS) imagery, Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper (Landsat TM) imagery, Landsat-7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (Landsat ETM+) imagery, and Landsat-8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) imagery. A full description of the process by which the data were generated is provided in “Use of public Earth Observation data for tracking progress in sustainable management of coastal forest ecosystems in Belize, Central America,” by Cherrington et al.
