Global 15 x 15 Minute Grids of the Downscaled Population Based on the SRES B2 Scenario, 1990 and 2025Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SDP_GPOP_B2
Abstract: The Global 15x15 Minute Grids of the Downscaled Population Based on the Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) B2 Scenario, 1990 and 2025, are geospatial distributions of the downscaled population per unit area (population densities). These global grids were generated using the Country-level Population and Downscaled Projections Based on the SRES B2 Scenario, 1990-2100 dataset, and CIESIN's ... Gridded Population of World (GPW) version 2.0 (v2) dataset as the base map. The 1990 GPW was used as the base distribution and the country-level downscaled projections were used to replace population estimates of 1990 in GPW and 2025. The fractional distribution of the population at each grid cell is the same as the 1990 GPW, sub-nationally. The dataset is produced and distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The data in American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) format and maps in Portable Document Format (PDF) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide a gridded data on country-level population and downscaled projections based on the SRES B2 marker scenarios.
