The Global Amphibians Original Grids of the Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1 are converted 1- kilometer grid cell data available in the |
Geographic Coordinate System (GCS). The input vector data were created by a consortium led by Natureserve. The grids are produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth
Science Information Network (CIESIN).
To provide a gridded version of existing vector maps of amphibian species distribution at 1- kilometer spatial resolution, which in turn can be used
in modeling efforts, wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, policy-making, biodiversity studies and human-environment interactions.
