Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1): Population Density Grid
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GRUMPv1_POPDENS


Summary
Abstract: The Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1) consists of estimates of human population for the years 1990, 1995, and 2000 by 30 arc-second (1km) grid. The

population density grids measure population per square km. A proportional allocation gridding algorithm, utilizing more than 1,000,000 national and sub-national geographic units, is used to

assign population values to grid cells. The population count grids are divided by the land area grid to produce population densities. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University

Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), The World Bank, and Centro Internacional

de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT).


Purpose: To provide a time series of raster population density data for data integration.
