Change the Game of Site Selection with Transect's Newest Disputed Wetlands Data Set

Featured Image

The Transect "Disputed Wetlands" feature is a game-changer for environmentalists and developers alike. With the recent Supreme Court ruling in Sackett v. EPA, certain wetlands are no longer protected at the federal level, leaving them vulnerable to development and destruction. 

The Transect platform has stepped in to fill this gap with their new feature.

The "Disputed Wetlands" feature uses advanced algorithms to flag potential disputed wetlands based on the new definition of protected wetlands under the CWA. This means that developers can now easily identify which wetlands are protected and which are not, saving them time and money in the development process. At the same time, environmentalists can use this feature to monitor and protect these vulnerable wetlands.

The Transect platform has also applied "Disputed Waters" logic to existing national waters datasets, making it even easier to identify and protect these important resources. This feature is a testament to Transect's commitment to environmental protection and sustainable development.

The new feature: 

  • Quickly informs users of regulatory changes through a proprietary dataset, flagging potentially disputed wetlands.
  • Allows the developer or environmentalist to uncover how recent changes to federally protected wetlands affects the project under the Clean Water Act.
  • And when selecting land and buildable areas for a project, will make sure builders are not rejecting land due to wetlands that may now be unprotected.

In conclusion, the Transect "Disputed Wetlands" feature is a powerful tool for both developers and environmentalists. It provides a much-needed solution to the recent Supreme Court ruling and helps to ensure the protection of our valuable wetlands.
