FieldDoc is the online platform restoration funders and professionals use to manage and visualize progress for their work. Via a user-friendly interface, stakeholders map their efforts and track progress across projects, with the ability focus in on work for specific conservation practices while also offering a high-level view across projects.

How this plays out is quite simple. A user that is applying for funding via a FieldDoc supported grant program will enter all of their project information as a distinct project in FieldDoc. The project information includes general project details, practice locations, and proposed practices to be implemented.

FieldDoc helps funders know where investments have been made and what impact those investments have had on meeting targets to improve water quality. For instance, across the Chesapeake Bay watershed, funders can track the impact of their grantees to reduce sediment and nutrients entering the Chesapeake Bay.
