Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3): National Administrative BoundariesEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GPWv3_NADMINBND
Abstract: Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3) National Boundaries are derived from the land area grid to show the outlines of pixels (cells) that contain administrative
units in GPWv3 on a per-country/territory basis. The National Boundaries data are derived from the pixels as polygons and thus have rectilinear boundaries at large scale. Note that the
polygons that outline the countries ... and territories are not official representations; rather, they represent the area covered by the statistical data as provided. The national/territorial
boundaries are designed for cartographic use with the GPWv3 population raster datasets. GPWv3 is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information
Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT).
Purpose: To provide a quantitative measure of the input resolution of administrative units used for GPWv3.
