Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3): CoastlinesEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_GPWv3_COASTLINES
Abstract: Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3) Coastlines are derived from the land area grid to show the outlines of pixels (cells) that contain administrative units in GPWv3. The coastlines 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).
The data are available from the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) in ESRI Shapefile (SHP) format via direct download at http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/gpw/global.jsp.
Purpose: To provide a set of coastlines consistent with GPWv3 raster data for cartographic purposes.

section of the publication. While we appreciate acknowledgement within the text
of the publication, we are better able to track the use of our data sets if
citations are included as references.
Appropriate citations are displayed on the catalog pages for many of our data
sets. If you would like to cite data for which a citation is not provided,
please contact NSIDC User Services for help in citing the data.
Further, we request that users send us one reprint of any published work for
