The Suitability Mapper enables users to identify potentially suitable sites for sustainable palm oil production. The World Resources Institute (WRI) and Sekala developed this publically available online application to allow users to replicate or customize the desktop portion of a method developed under Project POTICO for identifying potentially suitable areas for sustainable palm oil in Indonesia, and to identify priority sites for further investigation in the field.
For methodology and other details see our Technical Document.
For additional notes on methodology and applications, see our publication How to Identify Degraded Land for Sustainable Palm Oil in Indonesia.
Also see a related map, the Forest Cover Analyzer, which enables users to assess forest cover change and risks related to sustainable palm oil production in areas of their choice in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
