Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Global Human Influence Index (HII) Dataset (Geographic)
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_LWP2_HII_GEOG



Summary
Abstract: The Global Human Influence Index Dataset of the Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2) is a global dataset

of 1-kilometer grid cells, created from nine global data layers covering human population pressure (population density), human land

use and infrastructure (built-up areas, nighttime lights, land use/land cover), and human access (coastlines, roads, railroads,

navigable rivers). 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 Geographic Coordinate system.


Purpose: To provide an updated map of anthropogenic impacts on the environment in geographic projection which can be used in

wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, and research on human-environment interactions.
