ForWarn Data Interruption
We apologize that there will be an interruption in production and delivery of all ForWarn 8-day products for the immediate future. The recent U.S. Government budget uncertainty caught us between ForWarn production contracts, which have now been unexpectedly delayed until we once again have budget spending authority. Although we are unable to estimate the amount of time that new ForWarn products will be unavailable, we intend to resume the delivery of all ForWarn 8-day products as soon as possible. This is the first interruption in continuous service that ForWarn has had since its inception seven years ago. Throughout this hiatus, all historical ForWarn products, as well as all updates of ancillary map layers will continue to be available through the ForWarn viewer, as always.
ForWarn provides near-real-time tracking of vegetation changes across landscapes in the United States. Useful for both monitoring disturbance events as well as year-to-year variability, derived products can also be used to develop insights into seasonal and inter-annual dynamics.
Forest Change Assessment Viewer
The Forest Change Assessment Viewer provides a vegetation change recognition and tracking system for ForWarn that uses high-frequency, moderate resolution satellite data.
