Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Global Human Influence Index (HII) Dataset (IGHP)
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_LWP2_HII_IGHP


Summary
Abstract: The Global Human Influence Index Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is a global dataset of 1-kilometer grid cells, created from nine global data

layers covering human population pressure (population density), human land use and infrastructure (built-up areas, nighttime lights, land use/land cover), and human access (coastlines,

roads, railroads, navigable rivers). The dataset is produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information

Network (CIESIN) and is and is available in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) system.


Purpose: The dataset is to be used in mapping wild areas, modeling and wildlife conservation planning. Other uses of the data include natural resource management, policy making,

biodiversity studies and human-environment interactions.
