New Resources: We have a trial (available now till October 31, 2011) of Landscan, a dataset that includes country-level demographic data, 1st level admin demographic data, pixel (1km²) level data, and a layer with area calculations for population density. Country and 1st level admin level data include age, gender, and age-by-gender population breakdowns. The pixel level data contains a total ambient population value for each cell. All data is georeferenced in the geographic projection WGS 1984. Included with the data is a toolbox for use with ESRI’s spatial analyst extension as well as pre-symbolized layer files to use for symbolizing the data. All global data can be accessed via a standard Web browser at http://wms.cartographic.com/LandScan/index.html
Users with the requisite GIS software are now able to access data on Haiti from the following LandScan URLs:
- WMS access: http://wms.cartographic.com/GWS/services/LSSample/Haiti/mapserver/WMSServer <note: not accessible using a standard Web browser>
- WCS access: http://wms.cartographic.com/GWS/services/LSSample/Haiti/mapserver/WCSServer <note: not accessible using a standard Web browser>
