Canopée employs geotechnology to preserve forests and combat deforestation

Canopée Environmental Management is making a mark in the carbon credit market through the use of advanced monitoring technologies and real-time geographic information analysis. The company relies on its specially developed platform for data geoprocessing, forest area mapping, and carbon stock monitoring. This provides a detailed view of ongoing environmental preservation projects.

What is Geotechnology?

Geotechnology is a field of study that leverages the geographic location of objects and phenomena to develop solutions applicable in everyday activities, productive sectors, and public policies. This area is based on specific techniques and methodologies where data is represented by coordinates (such as latitude and longitude) and related to a geodetic reference system. Various equipment, including GNSS receivers, sensors on satellites, aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are employed to collect this data. Additionally, Geotechnology relies on a comprehensive technological infrastructure, including hardware, software, applications, algorithms, and programming languages for the processing and analysis of this geographic information.

Within the scope of Canopée Environmental Management, geotechnology and geoprocessing play a crucial role in mapping and monitoring forest areas. The company utilizes advanced remote sensing technologies and geographic information systems to create detailed maps and track changes occurring in these regions over time. This approach enables more efficient and precise management of environmental preservation projects, ensuring the proper protection of forests and accurate quantification of carbon credits.


Accurate Surveying

In the project development process, Canopée utilizes drones equipped with high-resolution cameras and LiDAR technology laser sensors to conduct a precise survey of the biomass in the forests earmarked for preservation. This advanced technology allows us to perform a sort of “scanning” of forested areas, collecting data with unparalleled precision and detail.

The drones fly over the mapped areas, capturing high-resolution images and conducting 3D measurements based on LiDAR sensor data. This provides valuable information about tree height, vegetation density, and other aspects relevant to estimating the carbon stock present in these areas.

Based on this collected data, our team can conduct precise and detailed analyses, reliably determining the amount of carbon stored in the forests. This information is crucial for the accurate quantification and certification of carbon credits, ensuring the effectiveness of environmental preservation projects developed by Canopée.


Historical Analysis and Change Identification

In addition to biomass surveying, Canopée conducts a historical analysis of deforestation and land-use changes in the surrounding regions of each project. This analysis is crucial for obtaining international certifications and demonstrating the positive impact we are making in preserving areas threatened by accelerated deforestation.

To carry out this analysis, we utilize historical series of satellite images and an artificial intelligence system based on machine learning. This combination enables us to accurately and swiftly identify changes that have occurred over time.

Through satellite image processing, our system can detect alterations in land use, pinpoint deforested areas, and monitor the progress of preservation activities in our projects. This information is fundamental for assessing the success of our initiatives and ensuring compliance with the highest environmental standards.


Digital Platform: Transparent Access for Our Clients

After the development and certification of each project, we make the data available on an easily accessible digital platform for our clients. To streamline access, we include a QR code on the client’s offset certificate, directing them straight to the platform.

On this platform, clients have the opportunity to view high-resolution images of the preserved areas, updated annually. Additionally, they can track real-time carbon stocks through precise and reliable data.

We believe that transparency is fundamental in our work, and that’s why this digital platform was developed. In this way, our clients can closely monitor the results achieved in their carbon offset projects. Continuous monitoring is an essential part of our commitment to ensuring the integrity and effectiveness of environmental preservation actions.

Through this platform, we provide a transparent and interactive experience, strengthening the partnership with our clients and reinforcing the collective commitment to environmental protection.


Canopée Environmental Management is a leading company in the carbon credit sector, recognized for its dedication to consolidating environmental projects and utilizing advanced georeferencing technologies to monitor areas under its responsibility. Our innovative methods of surveying and monitoring forested areas enable us to preserve valuable ecosystems, combat deforestation, and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

By combining remote sensing, drones, artificial intelligence, and an interactive digital platform called Digital Forest, Canopée provides clients not only with a transparent, real-time view of the preserved areas but also with information about the historical evolution of the project. This way, clients can track the positive impact of their actions and contribute to a more sustainable future.

By harnessing the power of technological innovation for nature preservation, we can protect forests, combat deforestation, and leave a legacy of respect and care for the environment for future generations. Our mission is to work in partnership with our clients to create a more sustainable world, where environmental preservation is a priority, and economic development goes hand in hand with environmental responsibility.
