Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1): Coastlines

Abstract: The Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1) consists of estimates of human population for the years 1990, 1995, and 2000 by 30 arc-second (1km) grid cells and

associated datasets dated circa 2000. Coastlines are derived from the land area grids to show the outlines of pixels (cells) that contain administrative units in GRUMPv1 and that fall along

waterbodies. The coastlines are designed for cartographic use with the GRUMPv1 population raster datasets. This dataset is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth

Science Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), The World Bank, and Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical


Purpose: To permit cartographic display of coastlines that exactly match the GRUMPv1 population surfaces.
