The Last of the Wild data collection includes the Human Influence Index (HII) grids, Human Footprint grids, and The Last of the Wild vector data. The data sets are available in global and continental scales. Global data are available in geographic coordinate system at 30 arc-second grid cell size and Interrupted Goode Homolosine Projection (IGHP) at 1km grid cell size. Continental-level data is available only in geographic coordinate system (GCS). Data are also available in ASCII (.asc) and ArcInfo Grids. The Last of the Wild vector data are available only in shapefile format. Details of how to use each format are in the readme.doc document included when zipfiles are downloaded.
These are ArcInfo Grids using the geographic coordinate system (GCS) at 30 arc-second grid cell sizes.
