Powering Conservation with Location
PracticeKeeper streamlines best management practice (BMP) tracking for conservation districts, state and federal governments and private entities. This solution also allows you to record data easily and run reports on conservation plans, nutrient management, erosion and sediment control, watershed plans and more.
PracticeKeeper Client Login
PracticeKeeper is a web-based application that is easily accessed from mobile devices and desktop computers. This flexibility means you can do your job from anywhere, whether in the office or out in the field meeting with land owners – saving time and improving workflows.
Use PracticeKeeper to quickly compile custom reports for submitting required compliance program data, responding to citizen requests for information and tracking best management practices within your conservation district.
Secure Document Management
Reduce paper clutter and store all documents securely in the PracticeKeeper cloud. With new features such as adding custom tags to documents and improved searching capabilities, it has never been simpler to consolidate all your data in one location.
Powerful Mapping Tools
By incorporating powerful location-based tools, PracticeKeeper makes it easy to visualize your data across the conservation district. Using spatial data layers such as watershed boundaries, the system auto populates location-based fields once new features are created on the map – streamlining data entry while reducing errors.
PracticeKeeper’s Conservation Planning module provides a secure, flexible framework for conservation district planners to create, map, administer, and evaluate conservation plans. By analyzing landowner data and automatically populating critical information via spatial queries, planners can improve the sustainable management of soil, water, and related natural resources within their conservation district.
The workflow-driven tools in the Nutrient Management module streamline the tracking, administration, and evaluation of nutrient management plans. Users can easily review the amount, form, placement, and timing of nutrient applications to minimize losses to surface and groundwater. Quantify nutrient management practices via spatial queries, and over time, modify or recalculate measures as needed. The module also tracks and manages details related to inspections, importers, imported manure, generated manure, and storage facilities.
The Watershed Management module manages the overall planning and utilization of watersheds. PracticeKeeper modernizes the process of creating and implementing watershed management plans, programs, and projects to sustain and enhance watershed functions that impact flora and fauna within a watershed boundary. Access spatial views of intersecting and overlapping BMPs in a watershed to better manage water quality problems, proposed remediation strategies and defined implementation practices.
Erosion and Sediment Planning
Formulate plans to minimize accelerated soil erosion and water body sedimentation from land disturbance activities such as construction, earth moving, logging, and agriculture using the Erosion and Sediment Planning module. PracticeKeeper enables the creation, editing, tracking, and review of erosion and sediment control plans through identification of landowners, BMPs, permits, fees, technical reports, meetings, and inspections.
Create, track, and manage complaints within your territory using PracticeKeeper’s Complaints module. Features include complaint type, descriptor, dates, address of potential incident, complainant, inspection, and responses.
PracticeKeeper can synchronize any file type seamlessly between a secure cloud environment and ArcGIS desktop. PracticeKeeper allows for the upload and management of documents created outside of PracticeKeeper, as well as maps created via the GIS interface. Link documents to any Conservation Plan, Nutrient Management Plan, Watershed Management Plan, or to BMP documents on a local computer or cloud server for secure, synchronized storage.
Land management tools allow users to create or add BMP types as the regulatory environment changes while preserving historical data. PracticeKeeper creates and manages narratives, including narrative templates for commonly used BMPs. Landowner information can be leveraged across PracticeKeeper modules, streamlining account information administration while reducing duplicative data entry.
