Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1: Global Amphibians Presence GridsEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SPECIES_AMP_PRES
Abstract: The Global Amphibians Presence Grids of the Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1 is a reclassified version of the original grids of amphibian species distribution maps. The data include 1- kilometer presence/absence grids for individual species available in Geographic Coordinate System (GCS). The input vector layers were produced by a consortium led by NatureServe. The gridding and grid processing are done by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
Purpose: To provide a gridded version of existing vector maps of mammal species presence at 1- kilometer spatial resolution, which in turn can be used in modeling efforts, wildlife conservation planning, natural resource management, policy-making, biodiversity studies and human-environment interactions.
