I want to compute the value of tree cover loss per year from 2001 to 2014, based on the "Global Forest Change 2000 to 2014" data by Hansen et al.
I downloaded the geotif "lossyear" from http://earthenginepartners.appspot.com/science-2013-global-forest/download_v1.2.html and have added it as a raster layer to my QGIS project (version 2.16.1).
Ultimately I want to compute the tree cover loss for each year in the (green) buffer zones around household locations that I have from a survey. Setting the band rendering under properties to "Singleband pseudocolor" with equal intervals the map with the household location and buffer zones looks like this:
I used "Raster/Zonal Statistics" before to compute the % tree cover loss from a different tif that shows a dot for locations with treecover loss between 2000 and 2014 (so no distinction by year). But how can I distinguish between the different colors i.e. years in this case here, given that its just in a singleband geotif?
