Space at the service of biodiversity

On January 11, Jean-Yves le Gall, President of CNES, went to the Elysée to participate in the One Planet Summit with the aim of mobilizing space capacities for the benefit of our Planet, and more particularly of biodiversity.

During the summit, the advances made by the  Space Climate Observatory (SCO) for the climate were highlighted and illustrated by concrete examples such as the TropiSCO project.

This project, led by CNES and CESBIO, is based on a very innovative algorithm for analyzing radar satellite images which makes it possible to monitor deforestation in the tropical zone in "real time" and to produce deforestation maps and measurements in less than a week.

Spatial data and capacities are of particular interest for creating new models for the environment, the climate or the protection of biodiversity.

From Connect by CNES, we welcome initiatives that make it possible to show and concretely promote these innovative processes. Convinced that there is still a lot of positive value to be created, we will continue to support companies that wish to go further in the design of new uses by putting spatial data at the service of the environment.
