Natural Resources

Since its first use of TerraGo, The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service has produced and shared more than 100,000 GeoPDF maps with its customer base — a community that touches the online mapping system more than 3,000 times per month during peak season. Streamlined production processes and more easily accessible and useful outputs have benefited both NRCS and its customers with increased efficiency and productivity in disseminating vital land management information.

For natural resource management organizations, the challenge of efficiently tracking and maintaining assets that are typically covering large geographic areas can be daunting. Whether it is a field inspection of a possible insect infestation in a forest or a river that floods annually, TerraGo’s GeoPDF® technology helps natural resource managers more efficiently map, track and analyze the status of their field assets.

By integrating imagery, maps, multimedia, structured and unstructured information with user-provided analysis and applications, GeoPDF enables these organizations to have better visibility of large geographical areas as well as the wildlife that inhabits these areas.

GeoPDF aids resource managers to more efficiently interact with and update the rich maps and imagery and route back damage assessments to emergency managers for further analysis.

When it comes to natural resources, collecting data in remote regions over millions of square miles poses a difficult challenge. Traditional maps carried into the field make collecting data a cumbersome process and getting that data back for analysis can be slow and arduous.

Project managers can use TerraGo Edge to create notebooks with tasks, custom forms and offline maps. These notebooks can then be assigned to teams to use offsite, even in remote locations without connectivity.

For example, forms for a logging site could be used to collect the species of trees, status on what percent have been processed and status of equipment being used. For bodies of water, fish population surveys could be performed and tagged to geolocations.

TerraGo Edge allows you to simplify workflows, increase visibility, reduce costs and make better decisions with the most up-to-date field data, intelligence and location-based information, all in one place.
