A global database of mangrove forest cover at high spatial and temporal resolutions that has been used to monitor mangrove cover at the global, national and protected area scales. Several databases including the Global Forest Change database, the Terrestrial Ecosystems of the World database, and the Mangrove Forests of the World database were used to extract the mangrove forest cover.
