Supporting Conservation Workflows with ArcGIS
The work of land conservation often takes place outdoors and away from the office, including monitoring land holdings and easements, collecting data to improve land management, and reporting on conditions and assets. This work can be made more efficient with the use of location data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). With simple configurable applications, users of all skill levels can digitally transform their field operations by modernizing paper workflows and ensuring the use of authoritative data in the field. In this presentation, staff from The Nature Conservancy will describe how Esri’s ArcGIS Field Maps and ArcGIS Online tools support their preserve monitoring and reporting workflows, in both the field and the office.
