A dataset visualising tree cover across the Greater Mekong Subregion at 30 x 30m resolution. For the purpose of this study, “tree cover” was defined as all vegetation taller than 5 meters in height. “Tree cover” is the biophysical presence of trees and may take the form of natural forests or plantations existing over a range of canopy densities. Dataset is encoded as a percentage per output grid cell, in the range 0-100. Open Development Mekong has trimmed this data to the area of interest represented here.
