BioCarbon Tracker is a free tool that provides data and maps to help organisations prevent greenhouse gas emissions by preserving forests and woodlands. It uses satellite data and advanced methods to identify ecosystems where biocarbon (carbon absorbed by plants) is stored; vegetation at risk from land use change; and land with high biocarbon stock that is converted to agriculture. The website provides an overview of how the maps are constructed, and a library of maps showing carbon stores around the world. It also publishes a blog highlighting relevant news, events and information.
