Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1: Birds of the Americas Original GridsEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SPECIES_BIRD_ORIG
Abstract: The Original Grids of the Gridded Bird Species Distribution of the Americas are converted 1- kilometer grid cell data in the Geographic Coordinate System (GCS) that cover North America, South America and the Caribbean Islands. The input vector data were created by a consortium led by Natureserve. The grids are produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information ... Network (CIESIN). The purpose is provide a gridded version of existing vector maps of bird species distribution at 1- kilometer spatial resolution, which in turn can be used in modeling efforts, wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, policy-making, biodiversity studies and human-environment interactions.
The data in Band Interleaved by Line (BIL) format are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To provide a gridded version of existing vector maps of bird species distribution at 1- kilometer that preserves the original coding (1=Extant, 2= Possibly present, 3=Probably extinct, 4=Extinct, 5=Extirpated purposely, 6=Occurs on indicated island chain, and 7=Subfossil/fossil).

Quality The observation location sometimes could not be occupied due to requirements by the ship's crew or the presence of fellow expeditioners.
Ship movement between SIPEX 2012 stations was often not sufficient for hourly observations to be conducted as the required minimum separation from the previous observation point was not achieved.
