Open-source technology for human powered restoration

Greenstand is building a scalable open source tree-tracking software using mobile technology that answers who (individual or organization) has planted what specific tree where, and how long that tree is surviving. We build custom-designed mobile and cloud-based applications to harvest tree growth data and support planters in the initial tagging and tracking of large numbers of trees. The system is streamlined to make it extremely simple for foresters to take over a thousand geo-tagged images of trees in one day.  The data is compressed in the mobile application and sent to a specifically designed cloud platform where it is processed, analysed for validity, stored and displayed. 

Each tree is evaluated using a custom administration panel and each tree can then be turned into a digital token that is linked to an e-Wallet which is tied to web links that allow individual investors to see and own their specific impact. Using this framework, organizations and individual users are able to verify their trees and advertise their efforts. This lays a framework for the long-term evaluation of each individual tree as an environmental asset.

 

Tree Token = Incremental growth of a tree (Standard Token = 1 tree for 1 month of verified growth)
