LifeLands (LiLa): Earth Intelligence for Climate Action

LifeLands (LiLa) is an innovative digital tool that uses satellite imagery, AI & GIS Mapping and  (i) creates land-cover maps at high spatial resolution for any area of interest, (ii) detects degraded/unused lands and (iiI) evaluates these lands in regards to climate mitigation and adaptation interventions such as sustainable water management, reforestation and solar energy generation.

Apart from overall rural upliftment via access to clean water, & energy and poverty alleviation via livelihood generation, this technology promotes environment and natural resource management by ensuring climate change and disaster risk mitigation, biodiversity conservation & natural ecosystem preservation.

Examples of how LiLa could help?

  1. It can detect degraded lands with high spatial resolution and identify lands that are best suited to meet India’s reforestation target.
  2. It can undertake a high level water demand assessment of any area of interest and identify best locations for surface and ground water management.
  3. It can monitor land-use change over time and help in reporting increase or decrease in forest cover.
  4. It can identify degraded lands that are best suited for distributed solar energy to meet energy security targets and inform utilities and project developers.
  5. It can inform land-use and zoning exercise at the local and state level.
  6. It combines socio-environmental + advanced physical terrain analysis to generate blueprints for sustainable rural development
  7. Provide true potential for any given land parcel/s

How LiLa works ?

LiLa generates rapid maps for site selection as well as critical data-based insights and visualisation that support decision-making via multilayered information including earth observation data, machine learning and in-depth subject expertise.

The tool enables decision-making with several integrated technology layers for extracting key performance indicators in order to optimise the selection to recommendation process. 

Our algorithms are scalable to any global region.

APPLICATIONS

Our maps and data aid in planning:
