The Conservation Module quickly quantifies environmental impacts and conservation benefits.

 

UrbanFootprint and The Nature Conservancy built the Conservation Module to compare and contrast the environmental impacts and conservation benefits resulting from future scenarios. The Conservation Module supports environmental analysis at every step of the planning process and measures potential outcomes across four key themes:

 

Water

Water

Analyze current and future land use scenarios' impact on watershed integrity, groundwater recharge, and water resource priorities, like drinking water source watersheds and wetlands.
Habitat

Habitat

Understand potential plan outcomes in terms of species movement and connectivity, conservation priorities, and habitat value. 

Agriculture

Agriculture

Measure the land use policy and its implications for agricultural capacity, agricultural production crop value, and water demand.
Carbon

Carbon

Analyze potential plan impacts on carbon sequestration and storage alongside UrbanFootprint's emissions metrics from buildings and transportation.
