Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_NAGDC_PLACEII


Summary
Abstract: The Population, Landscape, And Climate Estimates, Version 2 (PLACE II) dataset contains estimates of national-level aggregations of territorial extent

and population size by biome, climate zone, coastal proximity zone, elevation zone, and population density zone, a compendium of nearly 300 variables for 228 countries. This dataset is

produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide tabular data on environmental conditions (elevations, climate, coastal) in which people reside.
