The JJ-FAST system
Monitor global tropical forests with ALOS-2
JICA and JAXA launched the JJ-FAST in November 2016 as their commitment under the Forest Governance Initiative, which was announced at UNFCCC COP 21 in Paris in 2015.
JJ-FAST is a web-based system using JAXA’s ALOS-2 to monitor tropical forests in 77 countries every 1.5 months and release deforestation data, even in the rainy season. Users can easily access the data for deforested areas from PCs and mobile devices and download the data.
