Company Profile

Our mission is to balance the conservation of the natural world with the needs of the built world.

Transect’s software helps land developers to find, select, and assess their ideal project site. 

Our deepest expertise is environmental and landscape constraints, it’s our secret sauce and it underpins our differentiation.   The Transect data and interface help our customers to navigate the complex matrix of regulations and permits to get their ideal plot of land with the lowest risks.  Today we’re focused on the renewables industry during its accelerated growth, and our solution has applications in all industries that buy and build on plots of land.

The company’s technology combines public and proprietary datasets, industry expertise, proprietary algorithms, and site-specific context, to accurately define timeline, cost, and footprint implications of permits and regulations.   The permits are designed to protect endangered species, wetlands, aquifers, sensitive areas, and more, impacts of which can create years of delay and millions of dollars of mitigation cost to the businesses doing the construction. We help our customers understand how to avoid and minimize the impacts of these kinds of resources, showing them that what is good for the environment is almost always also good for business.  Our typical customer uses our software to consider over 100 sites per year.

Our team has over 50 years of experience managing environmental compliance and permitting underpinning our differentiation.
