The ten largest polygons of more than 5 square kilometers within each biome by realm are selected and identified. The dataset is produced by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) and is available in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) system.
The data in ARC/INFO Export (ARCE) format in the Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) system are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
To provide a map of wild areas in the Interrupted Goode Homosoline Projection which can be used in wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and research on human-environment interactions.
