I just discovered the earthmap website and I love it! I just regret I did not learn about it earlier! Thank you very much for the service to the community. Would it be possible to select multiple areas, either within a country e.g. for administrative units, ecoregions or biomes, or for several countries, and download the computed statistics in one csv file? This would facilitate a lot the integration of this information in our models on food and land use systems within the FABLE Consortium.

Glad that you like Earth Map and it can be of service.

Sadly we have no good way of selecting multiple areas on the Earth Map UI. This is a feature that has been on our TODO list or a while. There are 3 possible workarounds:

  1. EASIEST : Generate the polygons of your assembled AOIs outside of Earth Map (i.e. QGis), then export them as a GeoJSON or Shapefile and import the shapefile into Earth Map. Here is a guide on how to import and use your polygons : https://help.earthmap.org/how-to-guides/import-polygons-boundaries

  2. DOABLE (Requires knowing a bit of GEE coding) : Use Google Earth Engine with our scripts to obtain the data. You can basically get the same information from Earth Map using this script : https://code.earthengine.google.com/?scriptPath=users%2Fopenforisinitiative%2FEarthMap%3AResults%2FPortal%2FCharts ( see the testPublicFunctions function )

  3. NOT SO EASY (Requires some programming knowledge ) : Use our API to get all the information about your polygons in a programmatic way. See this URL (and let us know if you need more guidance ) : https://earthmap.org/EarthMap-API-TESTING.html
