Global Land Use Database

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The land use data sets developed at SAGE have a native resolution of 0.5 degree
in latitude x longitude. Here users can choose to interpolate their variable of
choice into any resolution, including latitude x longitude grids or Gaussian
grids (the latter are normally used by global climate models). For Gaussian
grids, we currently support only seven types (see pull down menu to the right)
