Introduction to Environmental Analysis

Environmental Analysis can be used to evaluate and understand environmental impacts of proposed development projects and solicit feedback from stakeholders.

It provides ready-made analysis and reporting tools that help streamline environmental review, solicit feedback from stakeholders, and generate reports for proposed development projects. This improved process decreases the time required for project review and increases communication between all stakeholders involved. Environmental Analysis is typically implemented by government agencies and conservation organizations that want to take a data-driven approach to environmental review of proposed development projects.

The Environmental Analysis solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you evaluate proposed development projects and solicit feedback from stakeholders.
