Welcome to the ESRI Conservation Program

The ESRI Conservation Program is the non-profit support arm of the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI). Through our donations, We have helped to create and develop spatial analysis, computer mapping and geographic information systems (GIS) capability among thousands of non-profit organizations and individual projects of all sizes and types worldwide.

Conservation Planning textbook: The Craighead Center For Landscape Conservation is a national scientific center using GIS to advance conservation theory and make it more available and applicable to practicioners and land planners worldwide. A new conservation planning textbook co-edited by ESRI is coming in Q1 2013 from ESRI Press.

Arc/INFO for NGO's! ESRI's NGO/NPO now offers nonprofits 1-year subscriptions to Arc/INFO for an admin fee of only $100/year. These are download only with no phone tech support but pretty easy to order. If you want permanent licenses with phone support and training, Techsoup GIS grants are a better deal. If you want GIS software beyond the bundles and can't afford the admin fees then ECP is your best bet.

Data Basin: is a conservation site allowing non-profit groups to create and manage their own communities for the authorship, management, exchange and sharing of collaborative GIS data. See: Arcnews Article

Planet Action : ESRI is a Founding Partner in the new "Planet Action" collaborative begun by SPOT Image to make high resolution sattellite imagery grants up to 2.5m available to local NGO's worldwide for action on climate change impacts in Natural, Geological and Human dimensions. To apply, read the "Planet Action" section of the ESRI Conservation Program Grant form.
