Google unveils satellite platform to aid forest efforts

Thu Dec 2, 2010

Google Inc unveiled technology on Thursday it says will help build trust between rich and poor countries on projects designed to protect the world's tropical forests.

Measuring the success of forest-protection plans in places like the Amazon, Indonesia and the Congo basin has always been difficult because tree disease, corruption, and illegal logging threaten vast remote areas that scientists can't monitor by land. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6B13RK20101202
