National Aggregates of Geospatial Data Collection: Population, Landscape, And Climate Estimates, Version 3 (PLACE III)
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_NAGDC_PLACEIII


Summary
Abstract: The Population, Landscape, And Climate Estimates, Version 3 (PLACE III) dataset contains estimates of national-level aggregations in urban, rural, and

total designations of territorial extent and population size by biome, climate zone, coastal proximity zone, elevation zone, and population density zone, for 232 statistical areas

(countries and other UN recognized territories). This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).

Purpose: To provide tabular data to researchers without GIS capabilities who need data on population and land area by country across a range of physical

characteristics. These include measures such as the number of persons living within coastal zones, the percent of a region within specific elevation strata, or the number of persons living

within different climate zones.
