Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) Treaty Status DatasetEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_ENTRI_TREATYSTAT
Abstract: The Socioeconomic Data and Application Center (SEDAC) Treaty Status Dataset contains comprehensive treaty information for multilateral environmental agreements, countries and organizations. The original data were obtained from the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) Environmental Law Center. SEDAC reorganized the data and added new variables computed ... from the original variables to include the year of agreement, year of entry into force, length of time to enter into force, number of signatories, parties, and former parties (if applicable), in addition to year of signature, ratification, accession or adherence, acceptance or approval, succession and denunciation. This dataset is produced in collaboration with IUCN and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
Full texts or a summary of treaties are available from the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) format via direct download from the Environmental Treaties and Resource Indicators (ENTRI) Query Service at http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/entri/.
Purpose: To provide information on the status of country participation in international environmental agreements.

Use Constraints Macintosh users:
We do all our primary programming on Macs, and we strongly recommend using Macs
for your display computers. At a minimum, you need a Mac Power PC with 64 MB
free RAM, CD player, System 8.1 or higher with Quicktime 4 or higher installed.
The software runs much faster and allows one-click updating of today's latest
... images if you copy the software suite to your hard drive. In that case, please
note the total hard disk requirements below for installing all the software on
your computer instead of running it from the CD.
You need 450 MB of free hard disk space for all of SPACE UPDATE, or 50-140 MB
free if you only wish to show one of the modules (Sky Tonight is the largest
because of the skyview movies included). Monitor requirements are 640x480
pixels, with 16-bit color (thousands of colors). No keyboard is necessary for
the display - only a trackball or trackpad and clicker.
Our system will run on Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, and ME, with at least 64 MB of
RAM. Sound cards are necessary to hear the effects (but are not necessary for
module operation). You need 400 MB free hard disk space for all of SPACE
UPDATE; or 50-140 MB if you only wish to show one of the modules. The Windows
versions requires Quicktime 4, and a display set to High Color (16 bit). The
Windows version is not available in two-screen format.
2 Screen version:
Our two-screen version is only available for Mac's. The first monitor is the
typical "Space Update" screen. The second monitor displays the chosen image in
highest resolution, without menu buttons or text shown - perfect for putting on
a projector for a live lecture. The second screen has a resolution of 640 x 480
pixels for Astronomy, Space Weather, and Solar System. It is also possible to
display the second screen on an RGB projection system, or TV monitor depending
on your setup and video cpabilities. The two-screen version CD contains both
the individual two-screen modules and the 16-bit color version of the
single-screen Space Update program - basically everything which is presently on
display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science!
