Data Science

High Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity

We provide remote sensing validation expertise in support of product development.

Open Source Software development

We provide a range of open source software packages in support of (academic) research.

PhenoCam near-surface remote sensing protocols, research and development

We detailed the protocol for the implementation of cameras within the PhenoCam US and Integrated Carbon Observation System network.

Picture Based Insurance

We provide protocol development and data processing expertise in support of this IFPRI led project to mitigate basic risk in smallholder farmer insurance.

Congo basin eco-climatological data recovery and valorisation

Project lead. The project develops a multi-faceted database by making the archives of the Institut National pour l’Etude Agronomique du Congo belge digitally accessible.

Jungle Rhythms

Project Lead. This project strives to transcribe old observations of tree life cycle events (flowering, leaf shedding, fruit dispersion), in central African Rainforests, which are key to understanding a tree’s functioning.

Historical Aerial Photography Valorization

We used a combination of historical (1958) aerial photography and contemporary remote sensing data to map long-term changes in the extent and structure of the tropical forest surrounding Yangambi (DR Congo) in the central Congo Basin.

Jungle Weather

Central African climate data rescue using a computer vision, deep learning and crowd sourcing methods.
