Feb 2022 | No Comment

TerraPulse has announced the company has been selected by the countries of BelizeCosta 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.
