R-evolution, Hexagon’s sustainable innovation and green-tech investment subsidiary, launched its forest initiative Green Cubes to accelerate biodiversity rainforest conservation worldwide. Using Hexagon’s reality capture technology to accurately measure and visualise the volume and complexity of the rainforest in 3D, R-evolution is enabling corporations to sponsor rainforest segments on a cubic-meter basis. 

The world’s first Green Cubes are introduced in Costa Rica to support the preservation and expansion of the COBIGA corridor, which is home to numerous endangered species. R-evolution has launched a partnership with La Gamba Tropenstation, an Austrian research station associated with the University of Vienna, to map 100 square kilometers of rainforest, focusing on 500 hectares, which represents 125 million Green Cubes. 

Powered by Hexagon’s digital reality platform (HxDR), R-evolution has led the development of the Green Cubes Methodology, a pioneering approach to forest monitoring and visualization. This approach combines technology and science to generate a digital twin of the forest, leveraging Hexagon’s state-of-the-art airborne hybrid image and LiDAR sensors and ground-based reality capture technology to measure and visualise forest volume, complexity and biodiversity indication.
