Summary
Abstract: The Global Amphibians Original Grids of the Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1 are converted 1- kilometer grid cell data available in the Geographic Coordinate System (GCS). 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 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 amphibian 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).
