The new interactive map shows the possibility of the impact of climate change and industrial development on the surface of the earth, unpleasant predictions about how vulnerable to our planets when we head for 2050. The new 2050 global land cover map is part of the ATLAS that lives in ESRI, knocks on satellite images and more for a glimpse in the next three decades.
“Understanding how our world has changed can provide insight into building a more sustainable and prosperous future,” Esri explained. “By analyzing historic global land cover data and observing changes over time, we can make fundamental predictions and estimates of growth patterns for the future.”
The result is a new set of maps, the work of collaboration between the Clark Lab in Clark University and ESRI. They use decades of satellite observations from the climate change initiative of the European Space Agency to show how different the land is used. By tracking changes from 2010 to 2018, they developed a vulnerability model that they could roast to the onllas that lived.
The track model where development can change the field of natural vegetation – or land cover – to agriculture and urban land. Built into the algorithm is factors such as distance to modified areas, the number of infrastructure populations, and gross domestic product data (GDP), along with Bioklimat and Geophysical data. The resulting map has a resolution of 300 meters.
What especially tells you that you can easily track changes from how things in 2018, how things are predicted in 2050. Not surprisingly, in many urban areas forecasts are greater SPRAWL, with what is currently land Agriculture, meadow, scrubs, or vegetation are rarely replaced by artificial surfaces or buildings.
Coastal areas are also very possible to see urban developments and greater artificial surface densities. It could have an unpleasant impact, considering that the study was recently published by NASA researchers who saw the beach flood trends. They found that, thanks to increased sea level from climate change, combined with a natural “shaky” cycle when orbiting the earth, seasonal floods are far more likely in the 2030s.
Previously, NASA As and the European Space Agency announced they formed a strategic alliance in climate change. Some of it will be a free release of satellite and other data, showing some changes to this planet from decades of observations by NASA and ESA projects. The hope is, as with this new Atlas, increased access to data trends and more will help emphasize the urgency of climate change and global warming.
