GIS Helps Save the Environment

The Trust for Public Land is a national conservation organization that uses GIS technologies to strategically pinpoint lands that need to be conserved on the landscape. Recently GovLoop spoke with Breece Roberston, National, GIS Director and Jad Daley Director, Climate Conservation Program at the Trust for Public Land – one of Esri’s Climate App Challenge Winners. For the Trust for Public Land, GIS is at the hub of how they work.

“We are an organization that does everything from urban parks to rural land conservation. We work in the medium of land, so spatial information becomes incredibly powerful for us. Spatial information is really at the core for us, so that we can align our priorities to help achieve some powerful outcomes,” Jade Daley, Director, Climate Conservation Program, The Trust for Public Land.
