S1E5 — Ian Hanou on What Urban Foresters Need to Know About Remote Sensing

May 26, 2021

I speak with Ian Hanou on his disruptive urban forestry software and AI​-driven tree canopy analysis.

This week, I am joined by Ian Hanou, Founder & CEO at PlanIT Geo, to discuss the history of remote sensing in urban forestry, how he got his start in the field, the gap he saw that led to the founding of PlanIT Geo and its popular tree mapping software suite (called Treeplotter), what urban foresters need to know about remote sensing, and how recent advancements in AI are driving the field forward faster than ever before.
