Belize, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic select terraPulse to map forest
TerraPulse has announced the company has been selected by the countries of Belize, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic to map forest cover as part of a sweeping forest activity study funded by The World Bank.
Through the program, terraPulse will apply scientifically peer-reviewed AI to nearly forty years of satellite imagery to support the countries’ monitoring of forest assets. The approach fuses data from local sources with global satellite data from NASA; the results will enable carbon modeling and the development of greenhouse gas inventories for the United Nations’ Land Use, Land-Use Change and Forestry (LULUCF) land sector initiative.
The project is part of the REDD+ Readiness process, moderated by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which supports countries’ efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and to foster sustainable management of forests.
