Description

TerraCount is a scenario planning tool for cities, counties, districts, and other land use planners and decision-makers. TerraCount models the greenhouse gas (GHG) and natural resource implications of different development patterns and management activities. TerraCount allows planners to evaluate the application of management activities including agricultural activities such as cover cropping, restoration activities such as riparian restoration, and avoided conversion such as avoided conversion of agricultural land to development. As an example, using TerraCount, this site showcases the results from modeling future landcover change scenarios and applying agricultural and environmental activities to Merced County, CA. The co-benefits section includes information on social, economic and environmental benefits achieved by applying specific land management activities.
