    • PROJECT POTICO // JANUARY 2013 // 1. Interface1. USER INTERFACE // DASHBOARD 1 2 Located on the right hand corner of the screen, the Dashboard is the main portal to conduct analysis. The Dashboard allows you to manipulate the map and choose which criteria you would like to measure. It has two main components: A •  Explore; allows you to investigate tree cover loss and to explore additional maps. Changes made in this tab will only affect the map displayed in the Analyzer, not the results calculated. •  Analyze; lets you define the area that you wish to analyze. Once you define the area, the analysis is generated automatically. It consists of ‘My Area of Interests’ and ‘More Areas of Interests.’ B To switch between the Explore and the Analyze functions, you can click the tabs on the Dashboard (numbers 1 and 2 in Diagram 1.2.) C A: TREE COVER CHANGE Adjusts the display of forest cover change data. B: MORE MAPS Select to view more maps of Kalimantan. D C: MORE INFORMATION Displays other information available on the map D: MY AREA OF INTERESTS Map controls to analyze your areas of interest.

    • PROJECT POTICO // JANUARY 2013 // 1. Interface1. USER INTERFACE // SUMMARY RESULTS 1 2 3 4 The Summary Results box gives a quick overview of results for the selected areas of interest. It has three parts: •  Change: shows the amount of total tree cover loss in the area of interest in the following time periods: 2001-2005, 2006-2007, and 2008-2010. •  Forest Cover: shows the amount of recent forest cover in each area of interest in the following categories: primary, other forest, and wetland. •  Legal: shows the amount of land in each area of interest that is classified by the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry as Protected Areas (Conservation Forest and Protection Forest), Production Forest (Limited Production Forest and Production Forest), or Convertible Forest (Convertible Production Forest). To change between the three sections above, you can click the tabs on the upper side of the Summary Results table (numbers 1, 2, and 3 in diagram 1.3). To export the analysis results, click the Export button (number 4 in diagram 1.3). All units in the Summary Results is in hectares (ha).
