Summary
Abstract: TerraClip allows users to easily get a country-level subset of selected global raster datasets. TerraClip's simple interface allows you to view and download the information you want for your areas of interest, either as an image or as georeferenced data for use in a GIS.

Existing sites for obtaining global-scale raster data are often difficult to use and require significant post-processing. TerraClip saves you the trouble of navigating those sites, identifying tiles in your area of interest, and stitching the tiles together.

TerraClip currently includes data on land cover, agricultural land use, and climate.

Description: Terra Populus will integrate the world’s population and environmental data, including

- Population censuses and surveys
- Land cover information from remote sensing
- Climate records from weather stations
- Land use records from statistical agencies

Data that are interoperable across time, space, and scientific domain will allow us to understand the dramatic transformation of the earth’s inhabitants and their environment. TerraPop is developing this infrastructure to make it easier for researchers to use data describing people along with data describing the places they inhabit.
