Lander is an application for forest monitoring. Canopy changes detected in satellite imagery together with local knowledge of legal harvesting areas produce alerts of potential illegal logging activity. This approach allows for a more frequent and larger-scale monitoring of forests and aims to improve the efficiency of ground patrols through prioritisation of highly active areas. Evidence subsequently gathered in the field aids prosecution and will help reduce the devastating effects of deforestation.
