Geospatial Data and Web Maps from the California Department of Conservation.
The Department of Conservation provides services and information that promote environmental health, economic vitality, informed land-use decisions, and sound management of our state’s natural resources. As home to the California Geological Survey, the Geologic Energy Management Division, Division of Land Resource Protection, and Division of Mine Reclamation, spatial data informs virtually every aspect of the Department’s activities.
The California Department of Conservation (DOC) is a prolific producer of spatial data and manages much of the data using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
GIS and Greenhouse Gas Calculation Tools
TerraCountA GIS-based scenario planning tool for cities, counties, and regions wanting to model the greenhouse gas and natural resource implications of development patterns and management practices on working landscapes. TerraCount includes calculations of co-benefits to agriculture, water quality, biodiversity, and human wellbeing. Merced County served as the pilot project conducted in close collaboration between the Department of Conservation, The Nature Conservancy, and the County of Merced. Learn More About TerraCount
