For Eco and Streets, tree inventory data can generally be imported into an established inventory project for those applications with a properly formatted .mdb Access database file. Eco can also use a shapefile for a project area boundary to generate a quantity of random plots for sampling if needed for a sample based project.

Shapefiles .shp boundary files can be used for the online i-Tree Canopy tool to define a survey area for estimating canopy and other cover types.

If you are interested in importing data into iTree from an external system, there are a couple learning videos for i-Tree Streets, Eco and Canopy that may be helpful under the Resources - Videos page. Here is the link
Let us know if you are looking at a specific tool and process for more details.
