Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3): Coastlines

Abstract: Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3) Coastlines are derived from the land area grid to show the outlines of pixels (cells) that contain administrative units in

GPWv3. The coastlines are designed for cartographic use with the GPWv3 population raster datasets. GPWv3 is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science

Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT).

Purpose: To provide a set of coastlines consistent with GPWv3 raster data for cartographic purposes.
