    This is a dataset of possible mining areas in Myanmar that was digitized from a systematic search of high-resolution imagery available on Google Earth and Bing Aerial. Digitizing took place in late 2015 and early 2016 with the most recent imagery available (usually 2014 or 2015). A field in the attribute table called "Certainty" indicates the how confident we were that the digitized polygon is a mine, rather than some other type of ground disturbance.

    Geotiff download link : http://bit.ly/2PHtJyf This is a Landsat 8-based classification of the extent and condition of mangrove forests in Tanintharyi Region. The classification is derived from satellite images which were acquired in 2014. The classification is based on ground truth data, which was collected in May and June 2015. In addition, further training polygons were digitized based on high-resolution Google Maps and Bing Maps data. This dataset is a filtered version of the initial classification result. The classified mangrove classes are ‘Intact to slightly degraded mangroves’, ‘Degraded mangroves’, ‘Heavily degraded mangroves’ and ‘Nipa monoculture’. suggested citiation: Stephani, A.; Oswald, P.; Koellner, T.; Wegmann, M., 2016.

    Geotiff download link: http://bit.ly/2IjLZtw This dataset is the result of a land cover analysis for Myanmar's Tanintharyi Region based on March, 2016 Landsat 8 OLI imagery. The primary purpose of the study was to map natural forest for each of four ecological forest types (Mangrove, Mixed Deciduous, Lowland Evergreen, Upland Evergreen). A number of other land use/land cover types are also included in the dataset, including human settlement areas, rice paddyfields, and agroforestry plantations. This dataset is the original version generated according to the methodology outlined in the corresponding manuscript. [Citation: Connette, G., P. Oswald, M. Songer, and P. Leimgruber. 2016. Mapping distinct forest types improves overall forest identification based on multi-spectral Landsat imagery.

This dataset is a REVISED version of the land cover map generated according to the methodology outlined in the corresponding manuscript (see below for citation). This version has been manually edited to fill cloud holes using 2015 data and to fix a number of obvious mis-classifications, particularly for oil palm and settlement areas.

    Road network with main, secondary and tertiary roads. This network-based connectivity approach mainly uses population centres, such as, Union capital, State/Region capital, Main town, other town and village location, as the bases to road network. Main Road links ST/R Capital to Main Towns and to Neighbouring countries. Secondary Road links a Major Road to another Main Road. Tertiary Road links main town to other-town and other-town to other-town. Original dataset title: Myanmar Road Network 2019
