TPL Greenprint

TPL's Greenprint is a customizable GIS application designed to help communities make informed decisions about conservation priorities. The Greenprint framework provides a systematic approach for identifying currently unprotected areas that offer the highest conservation benefits based on locally identified priorities. The Greenprint GIS application is coupled with a stakeholder-driven community process for identifying location-specific conservation goals and for establishing funding and acquisition strategies for land protection.
