Indonesian researchers develop Borneo Atlas to map palm oil production

November 27, 2017 |

In Indonesia, researchers from the Center for International Forestry Research have developed the Borneo Atlas, mapping the location and ownership of 467 palm-oil mills on Borneo, in an effort to help buyers ensure palm oil purchased doesn’t negatively impact forests. So far, 90% of the island’s palm oil production has been mapped. The map is integrated with Google Maps so users can look in detail at plantations and will be updated automatically to show any plantation expansion.
