Global 15 x 15 Minute Grids of the Downscaled GDP Based on the SRES B2 Scenario, 1990 and 2025Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SDP_GGDP_B2
Abstract: The Global 15x15 Minute Grids of the Downscaled GDP Based on the Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) B2 Scenario, 1990 and 2025, are geospatial
distributions of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per unit area (GDP densities). These global grids were generated using the Country-level GDP and Downscaled Projections Based on the SRES B2
Scenario, 1990-2100 dataset, and CIESIN's Gridded ... Population of World, Version 2 (GPWv2) dataset as the base map. First, the GDP per capita was developed at a country-level for 1990 and
2025. Then the gridded GDP was developed within each country by applying the GDP per capita to each grid cell of the GPW, under the assumption that the GDP per capita was uniform within a
country. This dataset is produced and distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
Purpose: To provide gridded GDP data on country-level downscaled projections based on the SRES B2 marker scenario.
