Customized Species Information for Informed Decisions, Modeling, and Analysis


Not quite finding what you want in our standard online data products?  NatureServe can provide custom datasets and analyses designed to meet your specific needs.

NatureServe can provide both non-spatial and spatially explicit information for species and ecosystems spanning multiple states or provinces (for requests involving a single state or province we recommned you contact our member programs directly). We can provide data products in a variety of formats from simple Excel spreadsheets, map images, or GIS layers, to more complex relational Access databases, Geodatabases, or custom Map Services. 


From simple maps to multi-jurisdictional precise species location datasets, NatureServe can provide one-stop access to information by coordinating with our network of member programs, and performing the GIS and database analyses to produce specialized data products that will meet your conservation needs.
