In the NICFI Survey carried out in November 2022, they noted they use NICFI Basemaps in GEE to monitor the protected area landscapes they manage in the Central African Republic and Mozambique. More specifically, NICFI basemaps are central to developing a detailed map of the Chinko landscape in the Central African Republic in GEE by combining them with Sentinel-2 data. This data fusion enhanced the resulting vegetation map allowing them to better distinguish between wet and dry forests, woodlands and wet and dry grasslands.
