Creating Strata and Sample Points for a Clean Energy Regulator Project

To meet the requirements of the Australian Clean Energy Regulator soil carbon project, several things are required:

-         The correct stratification of a designated Carbon Estimation Area

-         The generation of Random Sample Points using a unique ‘seed’ number.

FarmLab provides tools to quickly and easily accomplish this. A brief explainer is below:

Summary as follows:

  • Select the boundary you want to stratify

  • Select the layers you want to use to stratify (K-Gamma and Elevation are a good starting point for soil type).

  • Select ‘Generate Boundaries’ after creating the strata.

  • Select the strata and generate random sample points using a seed number. See the CER Carbon Farming Supplement for more details
