Fig. 2. Multitemporal composite illustrating general respect for boundaries of forest reserves located within the tropical forest biome of West Mengo. Vector coverages delineating forest reserve boundaries extracted from a 1955 topographic map are shown by white lines. The yellow area over Kampala is not due to clearing after 1986, but rather is a result of removal of that portion of the 1986 Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) image due to clouds. White arrows point to isolated areas still mostly forested, demonstrating presettlement cover. This composite was generated with two Landsat TM images and one Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM+) image acquired in 1986, 1995, and 2002, respectively. The composite was constructed by Nathan Vogt.
