Summary
Abstract: To accurately assess the impacts of human land-use on the Earth System, information is needed on the current and historical patterns of land-use activities. The Global Landuse Modeling (GLM) Data collection provides the first global gridded estimates of the underlying land conversions (land-use transitions), wood harvesting, and resulting secondary lands annually, for the period 1700-2000.
