Gaia AI

While forestry carbon offsets remain some of the highest potential credits on the market, there’s distrust stemming from a lack of rigor and data transparency in the verification of the carbon sequestration. Additionally, conducting forest inventories is expensive and inefficient and there is a labor shortage for foresters. Gaia AI uses drones, LiDAR, and computer vision to measure forests– fundamentally improving the method of verifying forest carbon credits and optimizing forest ecosystems for resiliency, carbon density, and ecological impact. We offer these data collection services with a data platform that empowers forest managers to maximize their return while fighting climate change by creating and selling high-quality carbon credits.
