What's included in the onboarding service?

For organizations who don't want to enter their data by hand, we offer an onboarding service on a sliding scale.  This includes:

  1. Consultation about data structure in Landscape and how your data can best fit within the Landscape framework.  You send or give us access to your digital data (spreadsheets, shapefiles, Access databases, etc.).
  2. Importing of the following data, often in distinct batches as we work out the kinks and fine tune everything according to your needs:
    • Property data
    • Contact data
    • Monitoring Data
    • GIS data
  3. Three one-hour follow-up training sessions, covering whatever you need, but most often touching on Stewardship, Projects, and the Mobile App.  We find that organizations often have a number of questions as they're just getting started which can be most easily answered in a screen-share meeting format.

Following that, any additional batch imports will require special programming, but are available for an additional hourly fee. 

What data are you able to import?

The following highlighted fields are all included in the basic import.  All of the information is not required for the upload -- often organizations have only some of the possible data in spreadsheet form. Additional data, such as information on funding, violations, or conservation values can also be brought over.

 If you have questions about these fields, these articles on Properties and Getting Started should help.

Monitoring Data*


*If your monitoring form data is available in spreadsheet form, we can import that as well.



GIS shapefiles for all of your properties can be uploaded all at once.  We just need either:

1.  One shapefile of all of your properties, with an attribute field which matches a distinguishing ID field from the basic property import (like property name or number).


2.  Multiple shapefiles of all of your properties, but they must also contain an attribute which contains a distinguishing ID from the basic property import.
