NOTE: A newer collection, Last of the Wild, v3, utilizing a different methodology for the years 1993 and 2009, is available.
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 1 km grid cell size. Continental-level data are available only in geographic coordinate system (GCS). Data are in Esri Grid (.adf) format. Details of how to use the format are in the readme.doc document included when zip files are downloaded.
