The land use monitor is in the process of adding mining & agricultural concessions to the map. A separate menu option has been added for this purpose in the map window (Concessions on the map). The concession that are present now are based on information from Global Forest Watch (palm oil concessions) and OpenOil.net (oil concessions). More concessions will be added in near future, so stay tuned! Do you know of concessions that you would like to see on the map? Please send an email!
