Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Global Human Influence Index (HII) Dataset (IGHP)Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_LWP2_HII_IGHP
Abstract: The Global Human Footprint Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is the Human Influence Index (HII) normalized by biome and realm. The HII is a global dataset of 1-kilometer grid cells, created from nine global data layers covering human population pressure (population density population settlements), 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 Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The global data in ArcInfo Grid (GRID) format in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide an updated map of anthropogenic impacts on the environment in the Interrupted Goode Homosoline Projection which can be used in wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and research on human-environment interactions.
