With origins in the not-for-profit research sector, ArborMeta was established to provide quantitative measurement and data analysis for all areas of forest science.
We're passionate about protecting the world's forests by providing accurate data that can be relied upon for conservation and biomass assessment purposes.
LiDAR Modelling: The New Standard for Carbon Stock Assessment
Using LiDAR instruments, ArborMeta measures & verifies above-ground biomass with precision. We combine state of the art technology with proprietary software to offer efficient and reliable quantification of biomass and sequestered carbon.
We provide the systems and software of the 21st century for the world of forest science and biomass measurement.
What do we do?
At ArborMeta, we provide a range of services for carbon accounting and conservation purposes.
We're revolutionising the world of forest science by using Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) to measure trees and calibrate broad-scale forest monitoring. TLS uses infrared laser beams to create extremely accurate three-dimensional models, known as 'digital twins'. From these models, we extract key metrics relating to vegetation structure, biomass, carbon stocks and more.
ArborMeta provides a modern, high-integrity approach to monitoring, reporting, and verifying nature-based solutions and conservation efforts. Our multi-layered LiDAR approach promises accuracy, transparency, and data security for voluntary and compliance markets alike.
What is LiDAR?
Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), is a remote sensing technology that uses laser pulses to measure distances and create highly detailed digital models of a given environment.
The LiDAR scanner sends out thousands of beams of light and records the time taken for each beam to reflect back to the scanner. Using this time and the speed of light, the scanner calculates the proximity of surrounding objects. By repeating this process at multiple positions, the scanner then creates precise 3D maps of its surroundings.
By combining this data with our proprietary software and algorithms, ArborMeta is able to measure and assess forests in new and highly detailed ways.
We are a dedicated team of philanthropists, environmental scientists, market experts, software engineers, and field technicians with headquarters in Byron Bay, Australia.
With backgrounds in various fields of science, data analysis and enterprise, our team are highly trained in collecting, processing and presenting LiDAR data. We aim to change the way forests are managed, protected and valued by providing new methods of biomass measurement. If you're interested in joining our team, please follow the link below.
The ArborMeta team aims to contribute real solutions to the planet's great environmental threats.
We strive to improve the management of the living planet by providing the analytical tools necessary to properly know a forest and its trees. Through accurate and reliable measurement methods, we hope to combat the environmental crises and restore the world’s forests to a more healthy and resilient state.
