NCX's Basemap technology is our high-resolution forest map that powers our program and estimates the size and species of timber on every acre of forest. We use Basemap as the foundation of the assessments we conduct for landowners who are interested in participating in our Natural Capital Exchange.
- NLCD dataset
- Satellite imagery from Landsat 8 and Sentinel 2
- FIA plot data
- Ground truthing measurements we collect
Our remote assessments have allowed us to scale our program quickly, democratizing access to forest carbon programs for landowners across the contiguous US.
Please note that Basemap and the inventory estimates we derive from it are incorporated into our overall evaluation, however Basemap is not available as a standalone product.
