Frequently asked questions
Explorer.land is a map-based platform showcasing restoration and conservation initiatives in a transparent yet engaging way. Restoration and conservation initiatives use explorer.land to document and display their progress via interactive maps and geo-located content (e.g., news posts and photos). Functions such as the call-to-action button facilitate immediate engagement with supporters. Funders, purpose-driven businesses, and buyers of forest goods and services use the platform to find interesting projects to support and collaborate with. The interactive home page, which includes different search possibilities, allows for easy navigation and filtering of projects according to criteria. Thematic global data layers, 3D views, and the integration of high-resolution drone or satellite imagery support transparency, engagement, and immersion in an initiative’s context and impact.
Map-based project presentations include key facts such as project type (e.g., reforestation, agroforestry), location of sites, important dates (e.g., start date), status, and other descriptors. Geo-located news posts and photos can link to different site locations. Content is structured via the tabs menu: Home, About, News, Sites, Partners, Sponsors, SDGs, Goods, Contact. All involved stakeholder groups (e.g., partners, sponsors) can also be linked to specific site locations.
Users can select from a variety of satellite base maps such as Mapbox, Esri, and Bing. We integrate third party thematic global data layers provided by Global Resources Watch (e.g., forest cover), GLOBIL (drone maps), TerraPulse (forest cover, biomass). We are continuously adding new thematic data layers so do check out our library often.
