What makes Carbomap the smart choice for mapping your forests. What are our specialities?

LiDAR Forest Mapping

We use our in-house suite of tools for processing LiDAR data to extract the key data about your forest. Find out about the advanced metrics for forest mapping that we offer by getting in touch.

Lidar waveform data processing

No other company has the ability to process full-waveform LiDAR data in combination with a range of other remote sensing data sources for forest mapping. Get in touch to discuss with us how we can process your data.

Multi-spectral LiDAR

We are leading the long-term development of our patented Multi Spectral Canopy LiDAR (MSCL). Contact us to find out more about how our work is showing that this technology will transform the way forests are mapped.

End-to-End Project Management
