Is there a free trial available?
Yes, you can test it by creating a project directly on the platform. This will allow you to request and obtain measurement data, and monitor how your project changes over time. No more calling consultants for long processes.
Is Kanop compatible with Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and other standards?
Kanop enables seamless integration of field data and the recalibration of model outputs, making our approach to quantifying aboveground biomass and carbon stocks fully compatible with VT005 (Tool for Measuring Above Ground Live Forest Biomass Using Remote Sensing). We are proactively working to maintain compatibility with forthcoming revision to VT005 as well as Verra's upcoming "Tool for Measuring Height of Biomass Using Remote Sensing and Artificial Intelligence".
What data sources do you use?
Our AI uses imagery from satellites that use radar and optical instruments. Some of the imagery is public and some is commercial. The mix gives you fast and accurate reports. You'll discover the power of easy and accurate measuring.
How accurate is the estimation of the aboveground biomass?
Our study's results were compared to a global database provided by NASA. We determined that the aboveground biomass estimation has a mean absolute error of less than 30 tons per hectare in many ecosystems. For further details, please contact us.
Is there an API to access the platform?
We have an API to help you scale your measurement verification operations. If you're interested, let us know.
Is ground data necessary?
Our AI models and automation push for a limited need for ground data. Depending on your need, you may provide us with ground data that will help our AI perform even better in your area (recalibration process). If that's the case, we will support you in importing your data.
How independent and unbiased is Kanop?
To avoid creating a conflict of interest and to keep carbon offsets trustworthy, we concentrate solely on measuring and are not involved in the buying or selling of carbon credits.
Which allometric relations are used?
At every stage of calculation, we employ a range of specific allometric relations tailored to the biome and species under consideration. These relations play a crucial role in determining important metrics such as volume, aboveground biomass, belowground biomass, and carbon stock. It is also possible to specify to us the allometric relations you would like us to use.
Can your solution differentiate between primary forests and planted forests?
Yes, our platform harnesses satellite imagery and AI to discern various types of forests, be it primary forests or plantations.
