Forest ecosystem and health: Ecometrica collaboration
NCEO is collaborating with the sustainability software and data firm Ecometrica to address the significant barriers to advancing applications of Earth observation in forests.
The project aims to establish international research and commercial partnerships to develop digital infrastructure and content to advance applications of EO in forests in Brazil and Mexico.
The outputs of NCEO research will be broadcast via new Ecometrica technology; the EO Lab. These cloud-based, connected labs enable controlled sharing and distribution of data products between collaborators and their stakeholders, supporting improvement of information content over time. The NCEO at the University of Edinburgh will be hosting one of the four EO Labs being set up as part of the project.
