Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1: Global Amphibians Original Grids
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SPECIES_AMP_ORIG


Summary
Abstract: 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).

Purpose: 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.
