FAQ

What is explorer.land?

The explorer.land platform is an online storytelling tool for the presentation of sustainable forest and landscape projects. It is built around an interactive web map which integrates high resolution and up-to-date satellite and drone imagery as well as georeferenced posts and multimedia. It allows members to communicate the story and the value of landscape projects in an exciting and transparent way and to build trust with stakeholders. Thanks to its project directory and search engine, the explorer.land platform increases the visibility of projects.

Who can use explorer.land?

NGOs, Governmental, private organizations, and corporations can use explorer.land to transparently present social and ecological responsible forest landscape projects, their services, and products to stakeholders, funders, supporters and the public.

Is there a mobile version?

A mobile version of explorer.land is not yet available to the public but we do have two mobile versions of the platform in development. One will be a full presentation version for showcasing and displaying the projects on smaller devices. The second will be a field input app which will allow project content contributors to capture images on the ground and publish posts directly to the platform.

Do I need some special skills to use explorer.land?

No, the platform is designed in a way that makes it possible for everyone to setup up a map-based project presentation and manage the respective content. In particular, no GIS (Geographical Information System) or other technical know-how is required to handle the explorer.land.

What are the costs?

The costs vary depending on the size, financial capacity and nature of your organization (e.g. company versus NGO), as well as of the intensity of the platform usage (i.e. number of projects, imagery size, etc.). The price is translated into a monthly usage fee.

In order to established the fees for your organization in particular, please get in touch with us.
