# MAPBIOMAS

## The Dataset

The MAPBIOMAS project gathers data reporting the type of land covering each year by area, that is, for example, the area used for a temporary crop of soybeans. It also reports the transition between coverings during given years.

The data available has an yearly frequency and is available starting from the year 1989.

## Usage

Using the function is easy enough:

library(datazoom.amazonia)

data = load_mapbiomas(dataset = "mapbiomas_cover", raw_data = FALSE, time_period = "all",
language = "eng")

data = load_mapbiomas(dataset = "mapbiomas_deforestation_regeneration", raw_data = FALSE, time_period = 2011, language = "eng")
