Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_LWP2_LW_IGHP


Summary
Abstract: 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) and is available in the Interrupted

Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) system.

Purpose: To provide an updated map of wild areas in Interrupted Goode Homosoline Projection which can be used for wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and

research on human-environment interactions.
