Easily search for, evaluate, and save sites as a project using our parcel size filter or upload your own KML files.


Save It + Share It

Don’t want to lose your work? Save it for later by creating a snapshot of the current view, projects, layers, and settings with the ability to edit, duplicate and delete a snapshot whenever you want. 

Keep your whole team involved in the site selection process by sharing your snapshots or viewing snapshots shared with you. Track project communication using the snapshot comment feed.


Permits + Timelines

Site selection is just the beginning...

Next, you need site-specific analysis and expert insight into how environmental constraints like endangered species, wetlands, cultural resources, federal, state, and local regulations, permits, and more will impact your project footprint, budget, and schedule by seamlessly transitioning your project into a Transect Report.

Environmental due diligence made easy (and better)

Right now, you are paying thousands of dollars and waiting days upon days to have your proposed project sites professionally evaluated for environmental red flags.  We can fix that!

Generate on-demand, in-depth, and highly-accurate Critical Issues Analysis with Reports to minimize the permit burden to your project footprint, schedule, and budget.


Data Layers

Where do we even begin? 

Wetlands, rivers, navigable waterways, public lands, parcel data, cultural sites, hazardous facilities, preliminary and final floodplains, protected species, special regulatory districts, tribal areas, soils, geology, contours, slope, aspect, watersheds, aquifers, landslide, karst areas, substations, transmission lines, pipelines, power plants, oil and gas plays, cell towers, opportunity zones, mines, faults, and an elephant-ton more.


Concern Ratings & Permit Matrix


Data is helpful, but what does it mean for your project success? Transect Reports use the data layers to assess high, medium, or low concern ratings to help you better understand key roadblocks to successful development on the site.

Each Transect Report includes a list of site-specific regulations and permits, a description of what triggered the permit, links to permit applications, permit timelines, and recommendations for next steps, like an onsite survey or agency coordination.
