Weigh your options.

People who plan and manage ecosystem restoration projects need tools to analyze data and carefully weigh their decisions. They must clearly understand all the ramifications of their projects. Esri technology brings authoritative data together and reveals problem areas. With intelligent maps, solutions become obvious. Analyze massive amounts of data to study trends. See how human modifications may affect the environment in the long run.

"GIS technology has made it possible for threatened species information to be included in the decision-making process."

Julia Marton-La Févre, Director General, International Union for Conservation of Nature
