Tomnod launched the Illegal Burning Detection Program in Indonesia

Tomnod – the community sourcing program using satellite imagery has launched a special program to identify the illegal burning in Indonesia as the consequences of the current hazardous transboudary haze episode.

TOMNOD: Indonesia – Illegal Burning

“The number of fires burning across Indonesia the past couple weeks spiked past historic highs, causing a thick haze of toxic smoke to envelop major cities within Indonesia and those of neighboring countries. Help Global Forest Watch map fires across Indonesia by searching satellite imagery and tagging every fire and burn scar you find.”
