Data visualization and analysis software for Protected Area Management

EarthRanger is an easy-to-use online software solution built by Vulcan Inc. to meet the unique needs of protected area managers. Our solution collects, integrates and displays all historical and real-time data available from a protected area—wildlife, the rangers protecting them, spatial information, and other threats. EarthRanger empowers protected area managers and rangers to take immediate, proactive actions to prevent and mitigate threat incidents.
