About Us


Carbomap are forest mapping specialists. We apply state-of-the-art science to the problem of measuring and mapping the world’s forest carbon. Originally spinning out of the University of Edinburgh back in 2013, we took forward over five years of world-class research in the development of new forest mapping technologies and approaches. We have taken academic research and have been successfully applying it within a commercial context for 4 years to date.

Carbomap have an international reputation in remote sensing methodologies; lidar forest mapping, satellite radar mapping, and measuring forest structure, carbon sequestration, as well as managing airborne and UAV surveys. We are leading this emerging market, having worked with government agencies, NGO’s and research institutes.

Carbomap: what makes our name as special as our expertise?

c is the International symbol for the speed of light. Our core technology is LiDAR, which uses the speed of light to measure the properties of your forests.
Arboreal means of, or pertaining to, trees. Our core activity is the measurement and mapping of your forests.
Carbo- is the combining form in names of things where carbon is present. Carbon is taken up by trees, which reduces carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and is one of our key advanced metrics that we can produce for your forests.
