SKYFOREST® delivers cost-effective, accurate, near real-time forest information using satellite, Lidar and imagery. Our advanced technology provides tree species, height, timber volume, stand density, age, and terrain elevation for each 10m grid cell of a forest.
By combining Lidar and satellite technology, SKYFOREST brings together the precision of Lidar complemented by high cadence satellite data. This approach provides powerful data that enables smart, agile decision making.

SKYFOREST® Geospatial Solutions
SKYFOREST produces several data layers that can help you meet and exceed your forestry management needs.
Tree species data at the forest stand, substand, block, or 10m grid cell level.
Hardwood-softwood data provides fine-grained, accurate and high-resolution data to differentiate between species.
Canopy height data from00 offers high-resolution information to identify productive stands and wood that meets your mill’s needs.
Digital terrain model
Developed from stereo imagery, at lower price than LiDAR, SKYFOREST digital terrain data covers millions of hectares to 5m grid cells.
SKYFOREST has detailed information on timber volume, broken down by species or hardwood-softwood composition, in 20m grid cells.
SKYSTANDS delineates forest stands consistently, accurately, and quickly.
Determine the density of forest stands with SKYFOREST Crown coverage.
SKYFOREST Depletion Mapping provides information from satellites to quickly elevate forest inventory depletion management and advance current and future workflow planning.
