The Last of the Wild Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is derived from the LWP-2 Human Footprint Dataset. The gridded data are classified according to their raster value (wild = 0-10; not wild >10). 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).
The global and continental data in Shapefile (SHP) format and maps in Portable Document Format (PDF) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
To provide an updated map of wild areas in geographic projection which can be used in wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and research on human-environment interactions.
Data_Resolution The FRRF was deployed 115 times. This was at each CTD station except CTD 3-15 (059) and CTD 5-4 (063). Underway data were also collected On Transects 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 and from Davis to Hobart, from the flow-through system in the Oceanographic Lab. FRRF ascent was stopped at CTD 12-3 at some unknown depth as the crew brought in the CTD. There was a delay deploying ... CTD 12-23, it was turned on and winched up but held for some time before going into the water. Data up to CTD 1-10 (036) were collected at a deployment rate of 0.5m/sec, after this it was slowed to 0.3m/sec. At CTD 3-2(046) PMT Gain was changed from Normal to Autoranging (lower limit 3) and deployment kept at 0.3m/sec down and up, but with an added 30 second stop at 10m and at 100m and PAR cap was removed just before deployment instead of in lab. These conditions remained for the rest of the deployments.
Note - there were a number of problems with the instrument used in collecting these data, and therefore these data should be considered of very low quality. The problems were such that the data were not included in the BROKE-West special volume.
These data are only available on request to the Australian Antarctic Data Centre.
