Description

Deforestation is a major problem that the world faces today. However, we are mostly educated on the effects of deforestation in other parts of the world, like the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil. Deforestation is affecting us everywhere though, and people do not realize it. Deforestation is happening in our backyards. Looking at a local area like Loudoun County, how much deforestation is taking place and why. The cause of deforestation in the US is mainly for development. Taking into account population growth in Loudoun County, this presentation uses GIS (Geographic Information Systems) maps, created from the analyzation of land cover data from 1992 through 2011, to look at how the forestry levels in Loudoun County have changed over the years.
