Take nature online.

Award-winning Ecosystem Intelligence solutions that visualize, enrich and analyze data, in near real-time.

 
 
 

Visualize with #UrbanGreenprints

To build a greener city, you must first understand where you are. We deploy our award-winning Index to share a compelling story that resonates with technical and non-technical audiences. You receive a detailed scorecard of the ecological, social and economic performance of your urban green space.

Custom development

Complex problems need customized support. Rapid advances in machine learning, coupled with cheap cloud computing, allow us to draw meaningful insights in near real-time from satellites, sensors, and drones. Together with cities, we attack green space management head-on by analyzing park-specific data, sketching out concepts, and reducing turnaround time to get ideas implemented.

VISION

Imagine a world in which every human being can freely access wild and beautiful nature, at their doorstep.
— That's our commitment.

Mission

To revolutionize the way we value nature, bring transparency to local government, and regenerate our cities.


About

Rapid advances in machine learning and cloud computing, and our award-winning Green City Watch Index, allow us to draw actionable insights about green space from satellites, sensors, and drones, in near real-time.

Together with cities, we attack green space management head-on by analyzing park-specific data, sketching out concepts, and reducing turnaround time to get ideas implemented. Our work is at the forefront of geospatial AI to help groups like the World Bank, City Planning Labs, and over 30 local governments around the world analyze and improve nature in cities. We like to think our work speaks for itself.
