A digital map of trees created by aerial mapping company Bluesky is helping to support a range of environmental projects in London. Using Bluesky’s tree map The Ecology Consultancy (TEC) and the Green Roof Consultancy (GRC) have undertaken a Green Infrastructure (GI) Audit on behalf of Hammersmith London Business Improvement District (BID) to assess the quality and extent of existing GI resources and provide recommendations for enhancing urban greenspace.
Agricultural and environmental consultancy ADAS and aerial mapping company Bluesky have joined forces to bring a new dimension to vegetation mapping. Designed initially to support environmental and conservation projects, the partnership will also reduce the risk posed by vegetation on ageing infrastructure, such as falling trees causing power outages. Both ADAS and BlueSky aim to improve the quality and currency of information used by both commercial companies and public sector organisations.
