Myanmar Mining Areas

This is a dataset of possible mining areas in Myanmar that was digitized from a systematic search of high-resolution imagery available on Google Earth and Bing Aerial. Digitizing took place in late 2015 and early 2016 with the most recent imagery available (usually 2014 or 2015). A field in the attribute table called "Certainty" indicates the how confident we were that the digitized polygon is a mine, rather than some other type of ground disturbance.
