This solution was sourced in response to UKGBC’s Innovation Challenge: “How can communities and local authorities implement, maintain, and assess the impact of nature-based solutions to enhance climate resilience?”
Plant species are declining at an alarming rate and a lot of species go unmonitored, however extensive surveying can be prohibitively costly reducing the speed and scale of implementation. Gentian seeks to address these problems through identifying roofs suitable for retrofit and monitoring biodiversity remotely.
Verification & Case Study
Every element of the platform has been proved in the real world. Along the process, several quality checks are performed by internal experts in Remote Sensing, Machine Learning and Urban ecology in order to ensure a quality product.
Case Study: Gentian started work with a grant from the European Space Agency, who have supported it in commercialising research and findings. Now the service is being offered to landowners, developers and local government clients who wish to meet their regulatory requirements and implement urban green infrastructure solutions.
