Project Foresight was launched, in early 2019, as a continuous effort to develop machine-learning based deforestation and forest fire risk assessment for tropical forests, using increasing higher resolution satellite data and official country data on anthropogenic activity. Version 1.0 included maps of the Peruvian and Colombian Amazon using 18 years of official deforestation data and the open source release of Maxent, as the machine-learning algorithm. Newer versions have been developed using mutli-model ensembles in R and Google Earth Engine.
