The Last of the Wild Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is derived from the LWP-2 Human Footprint Dataset. The gridded data are classified according to their raster value (wild = 0-10; not wild >10). The ten largest polygons of more than 5 square kilometers within each biome by realm are selected and identified. The dataset is produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The global shapefiles (SHP) in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
To provide an updated map of wild areas in Interrupted Goode Homosoline Projection which can be used for wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and research on human-environment interactions.
