RapidEye for REDD Brochure (PDF) » English & Spanish

BlackBridge’s RapidEye constellation has been and will continue to be an asset for the REDD+ initiative. The combination of large-area coverage, frequent revisit intervals, five multispectral bands, and high resolution makes RapidEye products invaluable to REDD+.

With a collection rate of up to 5 million km² of earth every day, RapidEye satellites have collected an archive of over 7 billion km², dating back to 2009.

RapidEye for REDD+

As part of its effort to assist participating countries in becoming "REDD-ready", BlackBridge holds an extensive archive of RapidEye imagery, which provide users with an excellent multitemporal data source to produce land use maps, monitor changes in vegetation health and forest extension, etc. Whether identifying which areas are forested or tracking the change of land use over multiple years, BlackBridge is the best partner. Wall-to-wall coverages of most REDD countries are available in our archive for use under the UN REDD and REDD+ initiatives. For more information, contact our REDD Team at redd@blackbridge.com.
