The Population, Landscape, and Climate Estimates data sets, PLACE v1, v2, v3 and v4, are part of SEDAC’s National Aggregates of Geospatial Data Collection. The aim of PLACE is to provide country-level measures of spatial characteristics for a series of statistical areas (countries and other UN recognized territories) to researchers for whom national aggregates in tabular format are more useful than spatial data.
PLACE estimates the number of people (head counts and percents) and the land area (square kilometers and percents) within multiple physical, biological and climate variable themes, for statistical areas around the world. These themes include: biomes, climate zones, coastal proximity zones, elevation zones, and population density zones.
