Geospatial Technologies for Conservation

We need to think about how we can conserve our natural resources. Not only to ensure that these resources are here for future generations, but to make certain that we are using them wisely and economically now. As populations grow, we find ourselves rapidly consuming these resources and causing harm to our planet. Through the use of geospatial technologies for conservation, we can better manage how we use natural resources and work towards sustainability. Six of our IGNITE Finalists have developed apps that can be used to preserve our natural resources.
