I’m a Product Manager at Upstream Tech focused on our Lens product. Lens enables conservation and restoration organizations, big and small, to efficiently monitor, analyze and report on their properties and projects. Lens users are able to access the latest and best data in one place from a range of satellite and aerial providers, as well as supporting datasets. Our goal is to enable conservation organizations to accelerate the pace and scale of their work.
As more earth observation data is becoming available and new sensors are launched, I see a huge opportunity to help make that information accessible to GIS experts and non-technical folks alike. I’m excited about how we can leverage the rapid tech advancements and expansion of data to make informed decisions about protecting and managing the landscapes that sustain us. My team is motivated to help organizations magnify their conservation impact with high-quality, actionable data at their fingertips.
Lens includes several data sources and layers, and we provide Regrid as an overlay so users can view it alongside remotely sensed data. Our partnership with Regrid has unlocked time savings and new opportunities for conservation organizations using Lens.
Searching for parcel information has long been a time-consuming process that involves navigating county records and non-standardized data formats. Our new integration with Regrid streamlines this process, allowing users to access parcel data records within Lens in a standard format across the United States. Coupled with existing imagery, analysis, and reporting workflow features, Lens users can quickly understand the current landscape and make more informed decisions in project planning or monitoring.
For land acquisition or project development, this means being able to rapidly view parcel boundaries and ownership details when exploring possible transactions. For stewards of existing conservation areas or projects, this can mean knowing when ownership of an easement changes hands, verifying easement boundary lines, and accessing up-to-date information on abutting parcels.
We’ve heard positive feedback from customers using Regrid already. With clear parcel boundaries and details available in an accessible, standardized way, Lens users can spend more time doing impactful environmental work. We’re thrilled to bring this high-quality source of information into Lens for organizations in Plus and Enterprise subscription plans.
