NICFI Satellite Data Program

Norway's International Climate & Forest Initiative (NICFI) is the country’s most important international endeavour to mitigate climate change, by protecting the world’s rainforests.

The Satellite Data Program is a public funded initiative NICFI that provides access to high-resolution, visual, and analysis-ready satellite data to support monitoring, verification, and reporting activities across the world’s tropical forests.

The NICFI Satellite Data Program led by KSAT with partners Planet and Airbus, makes monthly mosaics, generated from Planetscope 5m spatial resolution imagery available to anyone working to reduce and reverse the loss of tropical forests, combat climate change, conserve biodiversity, and facilitate sustainable development for non-commercial uses.

Through NICFI, users can now access Planet’s high-resolution, analysis-ready mosaics of the world’s tropics in order to help reduce and reverse the loss of tropical forests, combat climate change, conserve biodiversity, and facilitate sustainable development for non commercial uses - here in explorer.land it can be found in the timeline feature on the right-hand corner of the map!

In support of NICFI's mission, you can use this data for a number of projects including, but not limited to:

  • Reducing and reversing the loss of tropical forests
  • Contributing to combating climate change
  • Conserving biodiversity and advancing forest regrowth
  • Developing policies for the sustainable development of tropical lands
  • Protecting the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities
