By combining satellite imagery with machine learning we’re improving data precision and quality. High-resolution satellite images combined with preexisting field data, create detailed forest maps at a 15-meter resolution—enabling  estimation of details such as tree species, height, and density.

Armed with this detailed information, conservationists, foresters, governments, and landowners can use these maps to assess forest health and identify risks much faster and more accurately than ever seen before.
