MapBiomas Collection Quick Export Tool

To facilitate access to coverage and transition MapBiomas data by year, the project toolkit was created. Through this toolkit available on Google Earth Engine, it is possible to export collections by biome boundary, state, county, watershed, protected areas or any other geographic boundary that the user is interested in cutting.

Access the video tutorial to learn how to use the toolkit. Instructions are also available on Github. The following data are currently available:

- Land Use and Coverage Maps 

- Map Legend

The RGB color palette for each legend class is also available for use in ArcMap or in QGIS.


MapBiomas Image and Map collections are available as assets directly from Google Earth Engine without having to download or upload data.
