Protect, restore, and manage natural resources
Natural resource management agencies protect our communities’ natural and cultural resources. Understanding the relationships between ecosystems and our impacts on them requires a geographic approach. With GIS, managers can monitor species and ecosystems in real time or take mobile tools offline for monitoring in remote areas. Capture the extent of land and wildlife management activities and measure their impact through time. Turn this data into a conservation plan with spatial analytics.
