Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Global Human Influence Index (HII) Dataset (Geographic)

Wildlife Conservation Society - WCS; Center for International Earth Science Information Network - CIESIN - Columbia University (2005)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Global Human Influence Index Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is a global dataset of 1-kilometer grid cells, created from nine global data layers covering human population pressure (population density), human land use and infrastructure (built-up areas, nighttime lights, land use/land cover), and human access (coastlines, roads, railroads, navigable rivers). The dataset is produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Columbia University Cente...

Low Elevation Coastal Zone (LECZ) Urban-Rural Population and Land Area Estimates, Version 2

Center for International Earth Science Information Network - CIESIN - Columbia University (2013)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Low Elevation Coastal Zone (LECZ) Urban-Rural Population and Land Area Estimates, Version 2 data set consists of country-level estimates of urban population, rural population, total population and land area country-wide and in LECZs for years 1990, 2000, 2010, and 2100. The LECZs were derived from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), 3 arc second (~90m) data which were post processed by ISciences LLC to include only elevations less than 20m contiguous to coastlines; and to supplement ...

Poverty Mapping Project: Global Subnational Prevalence of Child Malnutrition

Center for International Earth Science Information Network - CIESIN - Columbia University (2005)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Global Subnational Prevalence of Child Malnutrition data set consists of estimates of the percentage of children with weight-for-age z-scores that are more than two standard deviations below the median of the NCHS/CDC/WHO International Reference Population. Data are reported for the most recent year with subnational information available at the time of development. The data products include a shapefile (vector data) of percentage rates, grids (raster data) of rates (per thousand in order ...

Potential Impacts of Climate Change on World Food Supply: Datasets from a Major Crop Modeling Study

Rosensweig C.; Iglesias, A. (1999)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
Data sets from a Major Crop Modeling Study contain projected country and regional changes in grain crop yields due to global climate change. Equilibrium and transient scenarios output from General Circulation Models (GCMs) with three levels of farmer adaptations to climate change were utilized to generate crop yield estimates of wheat, rice, coarse grains (barley and maize), and protein feed (soybean) at 125 agricultural sites representing major world agricultural regions. Projected yields at...

Global Reservoir and Dam Database, Version 1 (GRanDv1): Dams, Revision 01

Lehner, B.; Reidy Liermann, C.; Revenga, C.; Vorosmarty, C.; Fekete, B.; Crouzet, P.; Doll, P.; Endejan, M.; Frenken, K.; Magome, J.; Nilsson, C.; Robertson, J.C.; Rodel, R.; Sindorf, N.; Wisser, D. (2011)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Global Reservoir and Dam Database, Version 1 (Revision 01) contains 6,862 records of reservoirs and their associated dams with a cumulative storage capacity of 6,197 cubic km. The dams were geospatially referenced and assigned to polygons depicting reservoir outlines at high spatial resolution. Dams have multiple attributes, such as name of the dam and impounded river, primary use, nearest city, height, area and volume of reservoir, and year of construction (or commissioning). While the m...

Anthropogenic Sulfur Dioxide Emissions, 1850-2005: National and Regional Data Set by Source Category, Version 2.86

Smith, S.J.; van Aardenne, J.; Klimont, Z.; Andres, R. J.; Volke, A.; Delgado Arias, S. (2011)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Anthropogenic Sulfur Dioxide Emissions, 1850-2005: National and Regional Data Set by Source Category, Version 2.86 provides annual estimates of anthropogenic global and regional Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emissions spanning the period 1850-2005 using a bottom-up mass balance method, calibrated to country-level inventory data. It includes emissions by country and by source category (coal, petroleum, biomass combustion, smelting, fuel processing, and other processes). This data set is developed a...

Global Agricultural Lands: Pastures, 2000

Ramankutty, N.; Evan, A.T.; Monfreda, C.; Foley, J.A. (2010)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
The Global Pastures data set represents the proportion of land areas used as pasture land (land used to support grazing animals) in the year 2000. Satellite data from Modetate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Satellite Pour l'Observation de la Terre (SPOT) Image Vegetation sensor were combined with agricultural inventory data to create a global data set. The visual presentation of this data demonstrates the extent to which human land use for agriculture has changed the Earth a...

Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4): Administrative Unit Center Points with Population Estimates

Center for International Earth Science Information Network - CIESIN - Columbia University (2016)
Publisher: Palisades, NY: NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC)
Gridded Population of the World, Version 4 (GPWv4) Administrative Unit Center Points with Population Estimates consists of UN-adjusted estimates of human population counts and densities for the years 2000, 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020 by administrative unit center point (centroid) location. Specifically, the population data were adjusted to the 2015 Revision of UN World Population Prospects. The center points are based on approximately 12.5 million input administrative units used in GPWv4. Addi...

Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Global Human Footprint Dataset (Geographic)
