Lens™ In Action

The Nature Conservancy in California was facing a challenge: with hundreds of properties spread across the state, getting to each site for annual monitoring was time consuming and expensive. And even during field visits, they weren’t always able to see the whole property. Upstream Tech’s Lens™ enabled them to gain access to high resolution imagery for their properties, and created a platform for them to collaborate on monitoring and reporting across a stewardship team that’s spread throughout the state. With the ability to view all its properties from any desktop, TNC believes its stewardship process will become more efficient and they’ll have a richer view and more information about all of their holdings.

Learn more about how TNC California is using Lens™ to enhance stewardship on our blog.
