Once upon a time, our friends at Friends of the Earth U.S. had to share federal fossil fuel leasing information via spreadsheets.

Now, they have a simple website that automatically organizes and maps their uploaded spreadsheets, providing data in a way that will better engage and inform their organizing partners.

We used the very cool WP All Import tool to help Friends of the Earth walk through uploading updating spreadsheets, which are then turned into posts. Then, we integrated a mapping feature to provide the data in a more visual manner, mapping leasing actions so people can search for one that is near them and get involved or organize events around it.
