Our work together
At CGI we’ve used our skills and resources as a leading IT and business consulting services company to deliver an innovative pro-bono project to Project Seagrass.
CGI and Project Seagrass have developed an open-source algorithm that helps locate, quantify, and track seagrass meadows, initially across the UK region. The algorithm delivers insights using the CGI GeoData360 Earth Observation Platform, leveraging data from the European Space Agency’s Copernicus Satellite Earth Observation Mission.
These insights will be used by Project Seagrass to aid conservation and local activities to preserve and restore this valuable carbon sink resource. The algorithm is open-source to maximise the benefit, supporting academic and government plans to increase CO2 consumption by improving the health and volume of the UK’s coastal seagrass.
