The ... data products include shapefiles (vector data) and tabular datasets (csv format). Additionally, a data catalog (xls format) containing detailed information and documentation is provided. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), and Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT).
The data in Comma Separated Value (CSV) and ESRI Shapefile (SHP) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
