Guatemala has 259 designated protected areas covering approximately 32% of its land (or around 35,000 km2). From 2012-2017, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and Guatemala invested in the mapping and demarcation of land boundaries related to the nation’s protected areas. The goal of our project was to investigate the effectiveness of the program in reducing forest disturbances within the protected areas. Deforestation and degradation were mapped at 30m resolution using Landsat data and the Continuous Degradation Detected (CODED) algorithm on the Google Earth Engine. The study time period was January 1, 1999 through December 31, 2017. The results are a mapped dataset with information on dates of deforestation and degradation events for the Republic of Guatemala. The file can be opened in any software intended for geospatial analysis such as QGIS, ArcGIS, or ENVI.
