NatureServe Vista - Non Commercial

Current Version: Vista 3.2

Product Description

NatureServe Vista® is an extension to ArcGIS that supports complex assessment and planning in any environment, anywhere that has data sufficient for your planning needs. The tool helps managers and planners assess impacts on a variety of natural, cultural, and development objectives, and create options for sites, and entire landscapes and seascapes.

License Fees

NatureServe Vista is a powerful conservation software developed and supported by NatureServe, a conservation non-profit organization. Developing and maintaining software is a costly endeavor and we thank the many agencies and organizations that have contributed to its development and endowment over the years. The needs and desires of our users demand an aggressive program for engineering updates and enhancements and we are initiating a tiered fee system such that modest annual contributions by users can help maintain and improve the software for all.

Fee System

If you are using Vista commercially, you are required to purchase the commercial version of Vista. 


For the near term, Vista will remain free for academic, non-profit, and government agencies using Vista for their own organizational purposes.
