Near-real-time carbon monitoring is now possible
CarbonCrop is one of the first Asia Pacific companies to be accepted into Planet's Startup Program. Planet’s Startup Program provides selected startups access to Planet data for R&D, product development, and prototyping purposes and will allow us to leverage the highest frequency satellite data commercially available for advanced carbon stock monitoring. With the help of Planet data, we aim to revolutionise the way we measure and monitor forest growth and unlock the potential of carbon credits and further the power of artificial intelligence and satellite imagery for a greener future.
The Power of Satellite Data
Planet, a leader in earth observation, has transformed the way we view and understand our planet. With the largest fleet of earth observation satellites in history, with hundreds of satellites currently in orbit,they capture the entire landmass of Earth nearly every day. This means that CarbonCrop now has access to the highest frequency satellite data commercially available. It's as close to "live" monitoring of forests as is possible in the industry, ending the reliance on inconsistent image quality without the need to own their own satellites.
Unleashing the Potential of Carbon Credits
CarbonCrop uses artificial intelligence to measure and monitor forest growth more accurately to help support the verification of carbon credits. By leveraging Planet's satellite data, they can now access the most current information to effectively monitor even the most difficult native forests and help verify that carbon is being sequestered by these vital ecosystems. This data will support the carbon credit issuing process, which provides financial incentives to landowners and organisations that protect and improve forests.
The Role of Artificial Intelligence:
Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a significant role in CarbonCrop's innovative approach. We aim to combine AI and Planet's satellite imagery, to improve the analysis of forest growth patterns, and estimate carbon sequestration. This enables them to provide the continual monitoring of forest health and a level of transparency in the most often lacking carbon credit market.
A Greener Future
CarbonCrop’s participation in Planet’s Startup Program represents a significant step forward in addressing climate change. By using advanced technology, we can better understand the impact of forests on carbon sequestration and take action to protect these valuable ecosystems. The availability of near real-time satellite data empowers CarbonCrop to closely monitor forests with the most current and comprehensive information, ensuring that carbon credits are assigned appropriately and providing the necessary incentives for sustainable land management.
Empowering Individuals and Organisations
CarbonCrop's participation in Planet's Startup Program further exemplifies their commitment to accessibility and inclusivity. CarbonCrop empowers individuals, organisations, and communities to actively participate in climate action by harnessing the power of satellite data and AI. This technology opens doors for landowners, businesses, and governments to contribute to the preservation of forests and combat climate change effectively.
The collaborative work between CarbonCrop and Planet marks an exciting milestone in the realm of forest growth measurement and carbon credit issuance. By leveraging Planet's satellite data and incorporating AI technology, CarbonCrop is at the forefront of enabling sustainable land management and driving climate change mitigation. Together, we can create a greener future and leave a positive impact on our planet for generations to come.
