Development of the GTAP Version 7 Land Use Data Base


  • Avetisyan, Misak
  • Uris Baldos
  • Thomas Hertel


The land-use augmented version of the GTAP Data Base has been used for a wide variety of applications (T. W. Hertel, Rose, & Tol, 2009). It builds on global land cover and land use data bases documented in Monfreda et al. (2008) and Ramankutty and Foley (1999) as well as global forestry data developed by Sohngen and Tennity (2004). The methodology for integrating this information into the GTAP-AEZ framework is documented by Lee et al. (2009).
