Nature data analytics
One Platform

Measure the climate and biodiversity impacts of nature-based projects, from your desk.
Kanop’s home dashboard where all measurements and reporting of forest projects can be found.
For teams and ambitions of all sizes

Accessible

Our platform is flexible and easy to access.

Users create an account and can immediately begin measuring with just a few clicks. Product integration is also possible via our API.

Your data is always in your control. You can easily upload and export data from our platform - you're never locked in.
Measurement levels can be customized for every project to meet your goal and budget.

Breathing AI Models

Our state-of-the-art models are trained with space-borne and aerial LiDAR data points, which are processed through our sophisticated proprietary algorithms. To ensure accuracy and reliability, our models are rigorously validated using both LiDAR and an extensive collection of field data.

There is no project "too complex". Complexity empowers us by improving our AI, meaning your future measurements will be progressively more precise.

Data Products

Controlling measurement precision and costs is possible with our extensive offering.

Screening

Ideal for pre-feasibility and feasibility stages, to assess opportunities quickly. This product provides forest cover, biomass, carbon and Rao's Q diversity indicators at a 25x25m spatial resolution. Global coverage from 2013.

Standard MRV

Provides Screening indicators plus tree height and canopy height at a 10x10m and 25x25m spatial resolutions. The confidence interval is computed at 95%, and the recalibration with field measurements possible. Global coverage from 2013.
Nature-based Solutions data analytics just got modern. There are no silly questions.

Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about the platform.
Is Kanop compatible with Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and other standards?
Yes, we are. We support stratification plot design and monitoring for VM0047. We enables integration of field measurements to recalibrate model outputs, making us compatible with VT0005 (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 optical, radar and LiDAR 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.
What are the limitations on project size?
There are no limitations. Projects can range in size from a few hundred hectares to millions of hectares. We believe that all ecosystems deserve modern measurement tools.
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 20 tons per hectare in many ecosystems. For further details, please contact us.
What indicators does your platform provides?
Our current data product provides the following indicators, accessible via intuitive maps and interactive dashboards: forest cover, canopy height, tree height, aboveground biomass, belowground biomass, carbon stock, carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq) and the Rao's Q diversity index.
Is Kanop capable of generating baseline data?
In order to generate a suitable quantity of credits for a conservation project, it is crucial for developers to establish the 'baseline' for the region in question. Instead of relying on outdated data where validation is difficult or impossible, our AI provides transparent and precise data points as far back as 2007 to establish relevant and dynamic baselines.
Is ground data necessary?
It is possible, sometimes necessary (for instance to match standards requirements such as Verra’s VT0005), to recalibrate the output of our models with your own field data to improve accuracy. Please let us know if you are interested in bringing in your field measurements, we will help you upload the data onto the platform.
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.
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.

Still have questions?

As we grow our forestry projects, optimizing our measurement and on-site collection process was becoming essential in order to report to our clients. Kanop’s approach to MRV is very complimentary and easy to use.

Ecotree

Our forests under management have grown drastically as we expanded nationally and internationally. Tracking forest growth and health was becoming challenging, until we started using Kanop. Managing resources has become easy and the cost for doing so has drastically dropped.

Forestry Club de France

Tracking forest growths has been challenging for our members across France due to the high cost and tooling available. Kanop offers an affordable reporting solution that helps them to improve their management strategies, in a more complex environment due to climate change.
