That's where Satelligence comes in. This Dutch company can analyze satellite data to verify not too much forest is cleared, it is cleared the right way and some decent replanting is done. Companies that failed to live up to the standards they agreed to, have lost important customers or investors due to information Satelligence provided.

Space Cowboys talks to Niels Wielaard of Satelligence about what satellite data can be useful for this purpose, how to extract the desired information using artificial intelligence and about policing forestry.
