CMSi works in any language

Welcome to CMSi

Owned by a non-profit consortium of conservation and land management organisations, CMSi is the software suite of tools enabling adaptive management on important conservation and amenity areas and is unique in its functionality, scope and integration of mapping.

Already used to manage thousands of important sites, CMSi is set to become the standard approach to biodiversity and protected area management.

Developed over many years by a consortium of  conservation organisations, the current version harnesses the latest mapping and database technology to create a highly functional and easy to use software tool.
