This article presents the development of the Forest Monitor application and its use in the DETER Intenso project, conducted by INPE. DETER Intenso, complementary to the DETER project, aims to improve the production of deforestation and degradation alerts in the Amazon region. This is done through the systematic analysis of images from other sensors, thus increasing the revisit and also the accuracy of alerts through the incorporation of higher resolution sensors. Forest Monitor is the Web GIS developed to give access to these image sources that are found in a cloud computing environment. . View Full-Text
