Treemetrics, a world-leading provider of forest inventory and management solutions, has announced the launch of its new ground-breaking ‘real-time forest monitoring and measurement’ platform. In a world-first innovation developed at the company’s headquarters in Cork, Ireland, the platform utilizes advanced satellite imagery processing software to provide real-time insights into forest health and productivity.
Treemetrics Real-Time Forest Monitoring and Measurement Platform
The Treemetrics platform offers a range of powerful features to help forestry professionals and forest carbon developers to monitor and manage their forests. It is immediately available to users, who can access high-resolution satellite imagery, as well as advanced analytics tools to track changes in tree cover, biomass, and other important metrics. The platform also includes an intuitive user interface and easy-to-use mapping tools to help users visualize and analyse their data.
“We are most excited to introduce this new forest monitoring platform, which represents a major advance in the way that forestry professionals and forest owners can measure and manage their forests,” said Treemetrics CEO, Enda Keane. “With the ability to access near real-time satellite imagery and advanced analytics tools, our platform provides a powerful tool for accurately calculating forest carbon credits.”
Niall Bolger, Head of Earth Observation programmes, Enterprise Ireland, said: “Treemetrics is a great example of an SME that is successfully leveraging the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel Hub, a world class resource of Earth Observation data that has an open and free data access policy. With Treemetrics deep insights in forestry management, they have developed a powerful analytics tool that is sure to bring value to forestry owners and carbon credit managers across the globe.”
The Treemetrics platform is designed to be scalable and flexible, allowing users to monitor forests of any size or complexity. It is also compatible with a range of existing forest inventory and management systems, making it easy to integrate into existing workflows.
“One challenge in measuring forest carbon is that forests are dynamic ecosystems, and they can change over time due to factors such as tree growth, mortality, and disturbance events such as fires and storms. This means that the carbon capturing potential of a forest can also change over time, and it is important to regularly monitor and update the carbon inventory. We believe that our platform represents the future of forest monitoring,” said Enda Keane. “With its advanced technology and intuitive design, it is the ideal solution for forestry professionals looking to take their operations to the next level.”
In November, it was announced that Treemetrics was selected to participate in an important EU-wide project aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change by better monitoring of EU’s forests.
Treemetrics Ltd. was founded in 2005 by Enda Keane and Garret Mullooly. This software-based company has spent a number of years developing new technology to replace the traditional forestry methods which have been in place for over one hundred years. Nowadays Treemetrics provides pioneering solutions to the global forest industry in over 40 countries.
Among others, Treemetrics has developed an innovative and dynamic management system for natural resources that provides a wide range of tools to analyse, manage and display the available data in sensitive areas, including earth observation and field data. Treemetrics’ solution utilises recent technological advances in mobile applications, remote sensing, data mining and satellite communications technology and tailors them for maximum benefit for the forestry industry. www.treemetrics.com
