What are the different products available?
Our two products, screening and MRV, are designed to support you along the entire project development lifecycle. Screening is a basic product that provides a high-level overview of your forest cover, aboveground, belowground biomass, and carbon at a 25-meter resolution. MRV is a more comprehensive product that provides you with all of the information that screening does, plus additional indicators (such as canopy height), recalibration with field measurements, uncertainty level, at a 10-meter resolution.
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.
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, and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2eq).
Is Kanop compatible with Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and other standards?
Yes. 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 VT0005 (Tool for measuring aboveground live forest biomass using remote sensing, v1.0). We are proactively working to maintain compatibility with forthcoming revision to VT0005 as well as Verra's upcoming "Tool for Measuring Height of Biomass Using Remote Sensing and Artificial Intelligence". Kanop also supports VM0047 (Afforestation, Reforestation, and Revegetation, v1.0): control and project plot mapping, Stocking Index calculations, monitoring.
Is ground data necessary to measure?
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.
