Tasso Azevedo General Coordinator, MapBiomas 'Three decades of land use transformation in Brazil and the Amazon' In the last 35 years, Brazil – home of the richest biodiversity and largest reservoir of fresh water – witnessed immense transformation. Come to see how MapBiomas, a multi-institutional initiative working with cloud based machine learning applied to remote sensing, managed to unveil all the changes through the years. From Amazon to Cerrados, from Pantanal to the Atlantic Rainforest, from Pampa to Caatinga, passing thought forests, grasslands, agriculture, pasture, mangroves, mining and water bodies, MapBiomas is reshaping our understanding of the occupation dynamics of the territory.
