Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This dataset provides information on tree cover for the country of Myanmar for the year 2018. The spatial resolution of the dataset is 30m. Each pixel represents percent tree cover value. The percent tree cover values range from 0-100%. The dataset is derived by calibrating uncalibrated tree-cover estimates from Landsat Vegetation Continuous Fields (VCF) tree cover layer against high-resolution estimates derived from drone imagery and other sources. The product is the result of collaboration between Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and terraPulse.
