Creating Planet Intelligence

Leveraging the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, satellite imagery, and computing power.

From data to action

Our solutions help forest industry companies, NGOs & governments, and corporates to improve decision making with timely and accurate insights into natural resources.

Forest Intelligence

For near real-time forest inventory & sustainable forest management
Forests produce the air we breath and the products we use. They are massive and complex, that’s why we need AI and a view from the sky to understand them. Thanks to very high-resolution satellite imagery and radar data, 20tree.ai is able to extract insights on tree level on a global scale.

This includes insights into forest composition like tree species, tree height and diameter (DBH), tree growth & productivity, and harvesting insights. Providing near real-time intelligence into forest and wood inventory.

Combining satellite imagery and AI also unlocks insights that are not directly visible for the human eye. Insights into forest health & threats, like deforestation, drought, insect plagues, soil health, storm damage, and other forest disturbances. Resulting in more efficient use of resources and limited negative impact.

Sustainable Farming

To promote sustainable practises & support local communities

Farming and agriculture can have a big impact on forests and nature in general. Agriculture is the biggest driver of deforestation and resources are often used unsustainably.

Our technology is leveraged by local farmers and NGOs to extract up-to-date land cover classification on granular level and deeper insights into yields and productivity.

By looking at large areas of land with high spatial resolution and frequent revisits, 20tree.ai is able to monitor coherence to zero-deforestation commitments.

Urban Green Space

For healthier cities
Two-thirds of the global population will live in cities by 2050. Driven by climate change people are forced to move to cities, but cities are also under pressure of climate change. Heatwaves, air pollution, storms, and flooding are a serious threat that effect millions of people on a daily basis.

Trees provide a nature based and cost efficient solution to manage these extremely stressful situations. 20tree.ai uses city scans and monitoring services to gain insights into urban green spaces, like tree canopy cover, urban forest diversity, and air quality.

Our technology is also being leveraged by industry to monitor remote assets, such as electrical lines and train tracks, and their impact on nature and vice versa.

Global scale automated analysis of satellite imagery

Our insights provide answers to important business questions.

Tree features and productivity

Our forest intelligence platform -powered by Mapidea- provides insights on the most granular level:

  • tree species
  • tree height and diameter
  • growth predictions
  • harvesting analysis

“What is the value of a piece of forest?”

Tree health and threats

Maximize sustainable yield and productivity by providing timely and accurate information like:

  • drought
  • insect plagues
  • deceases
  • storm damage
  • other forest disturbances

“How can I limit the negative impact on my forest?”

Tree health and threats

Maximize sustainable yield and productivity by providing timely and accurate information like:

  • drought
  • insect plagues
  • deceases
  • storm damage
  • other forest disturbances

“What is causing deforestation around my farm?”

Soil & water intelligence

Trees and forests play an important role in soil and water protection. Trees protects from soil degradation and filter pollutants from water. On the other hand, both soil and water are essential drivers of forest growth and health.

Sustainable cities

The growing world population puts forests and cities under pressure. Trees are a nature based and cost efficient solution to provide shelter for heatwaves, to fight air pollution, and flooding.

Remote assets

Monitoring assets on a large scale can be labour intensive. We provide a sustainable solution to monitor assets. By leveraging radar data we are able to monitor assets through night and day and in cloudy areas.

Technology

20tree.ai is specialised in turning complex data sources into actionable insights. We do this by using our expertise in AI, satellite imagery, and computing power.

Satellite Imagery

VERY HIGH-RESOLUTION SATELLITE IMAGERY Satellites for Earth Observation have been around for decades, but the increasing availability of very high spatial & temporal resolution satellite imagery changes the way we can look at the planet.

It is now possible to identify any object > 30cm, monitor changes on a granular level, and understand complex patterns through night and day and even in cloudy areas.

  • up to 0.3m resolution
  • daily revisits on a global scale
  • high-resolution radar (SAR) data

Tree health and threats

DEEP LEARNING AI is one of the most transforming technologies of our generation. The latest deep learning algorithms have proven to outperform humans in both speed and accuracy for a wide range of tasks.

By feeding satellite data to our proprietary deep learning algorithms, 20tree.ai creates highly accurate insights and reveal patterns that are not visible for the human eye.

  • specialised AI for Earth Observation
  • high-quality training data & sensor fusion
  • unsupervised learning

Sustainability insights

GRID OF GPUS The latest advancements in computing have contributed to the acceleration of research in AI. GPUs and TPUs have proven to be a great fit for state-of-the-art deep learning and machine learning algorithms.

The total amount of satellite data that is captured on a daily basis exceeds 10s of TBs. To process the data, access to the latest technologies is crucial.
