Global Demography Project

Project Description
The Global Demography Project (GDP) is an effort to generate
consistent, spatially referenced global population data sets for
global and regional environmental analysis, demographic
research, etc. This project has been supported by the Consortium
for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) ,
the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) and
NCGIA. Output from the first stage of the project includes a set
of raster data sets of population density and total population
figures.
