Introduction to Conservation Easement Monitoring

Conservation Easement Monitoring can be used to routinely inspect conservation easements and monitor conservation easement programs.

It streamlines the inspection of conservation easements established to protect natural resources such as forests, riparian areas, and wildlife. The generation of property reports strengthens communication with conservation easement stakeholders and promotes compliance with the terms of each easement. Conservation Easement Monitoring is typically implemented by forestry departments, natural resource departments, and other conservation organizations that want to take a data-driven approach to managing conservation easements.

The Conservation Easement Monitoring solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you understand current property conditions, inspect conservation easements, monitor conservation easement programs, and engage conservation easement stakeholders.
