We are recovering environmental consultants, development experts, and software nerds.
Who We Are
Imagine a world where you have all of the environmental insight you need to choose the ideal site for your next project. From power lines to land contours to endangered species and wetlands. And, you also know every environmental regulation and permit required to move forward with your build.
That world is real. We built it. It’s called: Transect. And we hope you love it as much as we do.
A Bit About Our History
Robin, our CEO, started out her career as a field biologist in Austin, Texas. Her first project was during a long, hot Texas summer walking transects on 3,500 acres of a proposed residential development looking for karst features - yes, that's where we got our name!
Fast forward to 2016, when the idea for Transect is born out of Robin's realization that the "desktop" environmental research conducted as part of her clients' due diligence was inefficient. The way that desktop reports were delivered - in a static text report - was labor intensive, repetitive, time consuming, and cumbersome for both the consultant or the client.
With a mission to make environmental due diligence easy, Robin and the cofounders quit their day jobs in early 2017 to go all-in on Transect. Four years later, our team has grown to 18, Transect is available in all 50 states, and we are serving customers in 5 different industries.

We Don't Just Talk the Talk
The 'conservation of the natural world' part of our company's mission is about more than just environmental due diligence. We take our commitment to conserving the health of the planet and all of its creatures seriously.
So far in 2021, we have helped the City of San Antonio distribute bottled water to those in need following devastating winter storms and the resulting week of water supply shortages. We also donned our gardening gloves and sunscreen to work on the San Antonio Food Bank farm at Mission San Juan Capistrano (a partnership with the National Park Service). The fruits and vegetables grown on the farm feed the hungry in our community.
