Region 4

Major updates for RPMS Projections! First, we’ve expanded our projections into USFS Region 4, more than doubling the area we’re analyzing. To accommodate this we’ve moved the bulk of our image processing to Google Earth Engine. We were using Earth Engine before as a data exporter, but now it handles all of the spatial data manipulation except for the machine learning itself. This has allowed us to push a massive amount of pixels and get finer resolution (and more area) in our projections.

This update took priority over getting a web map up, but now that the projection system has been updated and automated we’ll be getting the online interface for viewing and downloading data implemented soon.
