Research & Development

Our multi-disciplinary team of Ireland’s leading researchers have created benchmark test sites and data-gathering  locations across the country feeding a petabyte-scale data platform

A range of contemporary sensing techniques are being used, including earth observation services , traditional and cutting-edge aerial platforms  and networked sensors connected to the internet-of-things

SpaceBorne

Photogrammetry is processed from satellite services including Sentinel and Copernicus

Airborne

Drone and aircraft surveys add specialist detail for specific locations

In-situ

Sensors and in-situ instruments provide a range of local data

SUB-SURFACE

Ground-based sensors provide data on what is happening beneath the surface

Models

The above data streams are transformed into environmental indices using machine learning and statistical methods, and integrated with earth system modelling to generate the best information possible for more effective and sustainable management practices and policies for carbon reduction. This allows us to equip policy makers at the local and national level with sensitive and contextually specific information to help combat climate change

Benchmark Sites

Data is sourced from multiple locations across a variety of land types and habitats , to inform areas such as precision farming carbon sequestration of grassland, and new approaches to public transport  or green spaces in urban areas

CROPland
Grassland
PEATland
Urban

Terrain-AI is initially developing models using land and data in Ireland, with the intention of sharing this knowledge internationally, allowing others to investigate land usage and carbon reduction in their own context
