Abstract

In this study, we present the basis of an automated deforestation mapping system for the Brazilian Amazon Forest implemented on the ArcGIS 9.0 platform and based on the comparative analysis of the MOD13Q1 products. This system is the first operational module of the "Integrated Warning Deforestation System for the Amazon" (SIAD), an initiative of the Brazilian government within the scope of the Amazon Protection System (SIPAM), which also comprises a 1) spatial information module, aimed at the assessment of the causes and impacts of the deforested areas; 2) a prospective module indicative of future deforestation risks, and 3) a data and information gateway.
