We help Bay restoration stakeholders access, organize, and share environmental data.

Access

Our team helps local government, NGOs, and Foundations access public data in an open format for Bay-focused projects.

Organize

We help our stakeholders structure new or existing data sources so they are made instantly available for analysis, mapping, and application development.

Share

We help restoration partners share their data through integrated social media and our open developer platform, Commons Cloud.

With education & strategy, beautiful visualizations, and our open data repository.

Education + Strategy

We show organizations how to create efficient workflows around data management as well as follow and share the latest best practices in open data.

Visualizations

We help turn data into knowledge by building visualizations that inform smart and effective Bay restoration policy.

Data

We openly share a variety of curated, Bay-centric data that are maintained by our network of partners and other restoration professionals.
