forestChange: Computing Essential Biodiversity Variables from Global Forest Change Data

Metrics of two Essential Biodiversity Variables: forest extents and forest fragmentation indices (O'connor et al., 2015) <doi:10.1002/rse2.4> are computed by processing Global Forest Change data (Hansen et al., 2013) <doi:10.1126/science.1244693>. The Forest Change Data are extracted using either Geographic Administrative Units, see <>, or user-defined polygons. Most of the procedures can be understood implementing two functions: FCPolygon() and EBVmetric().
