Completing the Carbon Circle

Satelytics’ data can feed carbon uptake models.

  • Problem: Accurate emissions tracking.
  • Solution: Utilize vegetation data.
  • Benefit: Accurate uptake records.

Carbon is the topic of the day for many in the energy industry. Many of our customers have embraced efforts to reduce emissions operationally and are now exploring other ways to remove additional anthropogenic carbon — creating carbon offsets. If land is already being managed, why not reap carbon offset benefits?

Satelytics’ customers benefit by applying our 40+ Constant Vigilance™ algorithms to their business challenges for a single cost. Address multiple business challenges with our vegetation management suite, not only receiving alerts to encroachments and threats but also accounting various aspects of vegetation lifecycles.

Vegetation Growth and Tree Height

Our vegetation algorithms analyze high-resolution imagery, which allows for the identification of individual trees spread over large areas. Every tree is tagged with a unique ID number and cataloged for comparison against sequential surveys. We measure tree height within 5% of the actual height and indicate changes in health. With regular monitoring, our customers can track growth and subsequently assess carbon uptake.

As part of our vegetation suite, our algorithms also speciate both coniferous and deciduous trees. Our spectral library has come to include many common tree species over the years and continues to expand with each new project. Different species grow at different rates, making speciation an essential factor in carbon modeling.

FAQ: Is Vegetation Speciation Possible With Satelytics?

In addition to trees, Satelytics’ vegetation algorithms are also employed to monitor grasses and brush, giving customers a complete picture of their landscapes.
