Our team has collectively over 20 years working in environmental science, and specialising in the analysis of satellite data.

This has allowed us to build up a portfolio of approaches to map and analyse forests. By automating these approaches, we can efficiently deliver a range of services. Our core service is the automated mapping of deforestation and forest degradation.

The main benefits to the buyer are:

  • rapid delivery of robust analysis, backed by University of Edinburgh science
  • maps of forest, deforestation and forest degradation without cloud cover (since radar sees through clouds)
  • transparent pricing on a per-hectare basis
  • a responsive team of leading environmental scientists, but which understands the pressures that businesses are under for rapid results
Globe Satellites

The two Sentinel 1a satellites collect data over the whole planet every 6 days. Their Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors can see through cloud and smoke so images of your area of interest are guaranteed.

Space Intelligence’s unique processing chain and algorithms detect when and where changes are occurring in forests.

This all happens automatically after an area of interest is agreed with a client.


We can see changes even when they cover a very small area or are below the forest canopy.

We distribute our on-demand change product to you, at a low per hectare cost, in your format of choice.

We can provide .kmz, .geotif, and earth web mapping system files.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements, such as integrating into your existing workflows.
