Data Use - Population and Burned Areas Around the Globe
PLoS ONE – February 7, 2014 Research based on data from SEDAC’s Gridded Population of the World collection and burned area maps based on NASA’s MODIS satellite observations is helping to untangle the complex relationship between population density, land use and fire.
Data Use - Carbon Dioxide Emission Patterns and Population
Geophysical Research Letters – January 31, 2014 Using measurements from NASA’s Measurement of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument and SEDAC’s Gridded Population of the World data researchers are able to better understand global carbon dioxide emissions.
Data Use - Human Impacts Drive Global Tree Cover Patterns
Nature Communications – January 7, 2014 Scientists using SEDAC’s Human Influence Index data set, NASA’s MODIS tree cover satellite imagery and SRTM slope data have begun to uncover the relationship between human impacts and global tree cover distribution.
Map Gallery - Global Distribution of Human Population
Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3) GPWv3 data collection provides globally consistent and spatially explicit human population information and data that are compatible with data sets from social, economic, and Earth science fields to support interdisciplinary research.
Map Gallery - Global Distribution of Poverty
Poverty Mapping The Global Poverty Mapping Project includes data sets of the global distribution of poverty and the geographic and biophysical conditions of where the poor live. The project aims to assist in designing interventions to reduce poverty.
Map Gallery - Population, Landscape, and Climate Estimates
National Aggregates of Geospatial Data Collection (NAGDC) This data and map collection contains country-level measures of spatial characteristics for a series of countries and other UN recognized territories for researchers who find national aggregates more useful than GIS data.
Tools and Apps - Population Estimation Service (PES)
The Population Estimation Service is a Web-based service for estimating population totals and related statistics within a user-defined region. The service is accessible through three standard protocols: OGC-WPS, ArcGIS-REST and ArcGIS-SOAP.
Tools and Apps - Ramsar Wetland Sites Mapper
The Ramsar Wetland Sites Mapper is a Web-based service for assessing the exposure to sea level rise of coastal wetlands designated as Ramsar Wetlands of International Importance (Ramsar Sites). The service supports WMS and WFS protocols.
Tools and Apps - ENTRI Query Service
The Environmental Treaties and Resource Indicators (ENTRI) Query Service is a comprehensive application for accessing environmental treaty texts and status data such as signatories, parties, year of agreement and other related information.
