Last of the Wild Project, Version 2, 2005 (LWP-2): Last of the Wild Dataset (Geographic)

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 Geographic Coordinate system.

Purpose: 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.
