Space Intelligence

Enabling Nature Based Solutions to climate change.

Space Intelligence supports developers of Nature Based Solutions in their project development and monitoring, ensuring delivery of climate benefits. We do this by providing information on land cover, analysing habitats and above ground carbon storage across the world. We work with governments, NGOs and large multinationals to provide trusted information backed by world-class science.

We create this information by applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to big data from satellites, leveraging decades of experience in using satellite data analytics to address environmental challenges. We provide high-quality products and services, whether that is the classification of satellite imagery, advising on data acquisition and processing, or implementing large scale forest monitoring programmes.

We have utilised our HabitatMapper and CarbonMapper for many projects in Africa, Asia and the Americas, working with multinational companies and major NGOs. We also undertake work closer to home, having conducted landscape analysis for the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Recently, we published Scotland’s first-ever Scotland-wide high-resolution habitat maps, for free, funded by the Scottish government.

Space Intelligence is a fast-growing team, ranked in the top 10 most innovative Scottish tech companies in 2020 in the BusinessCloud Scotland Tech 50, and currently a participant in the Bayes DDE Post-Covid AI Accelerator.
