Rely on an advanced solution to curb deforestation and meet sustainable forest management.

The protection of our forest resources, biodiversity and climate change are issues that occupy a major place in our society. Starling delivers incomparable forestry analytics to support people in their journey to curve deforestation and better protect our Ecosystem.

With Starling, access a digital service that provides accurate land cover maps and forest cover change data. Enhanced with your supply chain information, it enables you to take action, towards a more sustainable policy and forest management strategy.

Starling is a remote sensing solution that uses a combination of optical and radar satellites images, such as Airbus’ SPOT constellation, which combines large coverage capabilities with 1.5m resolution. SPOT 6 and 7 are complemented by other satellite data, including radar sensors such as Sentinel 1, for regular monitoring. 

What's In It?

The Basemap: Includes a reference layer that differentiates natural forest from tree plantations, to distinguish regular logging within plantations from actual deforestation.

Forest Monitoring: Identifies forest cover change through key criteria, such as forest type under threat, size and dynamics of deforestation.

The Dashboard: Analytics designed to prioritize decision making and provides a global view of deforestation to drive supply chain transformation and land use.
