DLDD Map Viewer for Latin America

The EUROCLIMA DLDD Map Viewer is web-based map server that provides the necessary data, information and tools for a comprehensive analysis of the drought phenomenon and the problem of land degradation and desertification in Latin America. The web-based map server is designed to serve as a knowledge transfer platform for capacity building in Latin America and as a decision support system regarding the problems of DLDD for the region.

The map server allows to retrieved information on desertification, land degradation and drought from local to regional scales, namely:
  • Socio-economic and biophysical data;
  • 10-daily biophysical  measurements of the fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (fAPAR) and respective anomalies derived from medium spatial resolution satellite images (SPOT-VGT);
  • Time series of phenological metrics derived from medium spatial resolution satellite images (NOAA-AVHRR);
  • Monthly Standardized Precipitation Index (SPI) maps derived from the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) monitoring products;
  • Drought frequency and duration maps.
