  2. update the URL for the Earthdata Wiki on the "Communities" page

    the URL for the Earthdata Wiki is incorrect on your "Communities" page... the URL should be

    https://wiki.earthdata.nasa.gov/

    (remove everything past the .gov)

    Thanks!

    Thanks for letting us know. We are in the process of updating the PES client to a new version which we should have available within the next day or two. The new PES client will be much improved and exponentially faster. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

  4. urban heat islands: data documentation, make maps clearer

    Documentation should report the resolution of the MODIS data

    Maps should say "summer" more prominently, and not distinguish between -1 to 0 and 0 to 1 without a middle category reflecting the precision of the estimates.

    I was also somewhat confused by the term "average daytime maximum (1:30 p.m. overpass)" and its nighttime analog - over what samples are the maxima and averages calculated? It is clearly not the case that 1:30 temperatures are always the daytime maximum.

  5. Do this all for the 2010 census?

    I would love information on population density etc. from the most recent census. Is there a reason this is only the 2000 data?

  7. need to specify workspace to use map services

    this page: http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/data/collection/wildareas-v2/maps/services

    Shows map services available but the documentation omits the workspace needed to get the WMS layers to work.

    It took a while and many guesses to figure out that the workspace name for the layers is "wildareas-v2"

    so each of these layers needs to be prefaced with this workspace name, e.g.:
    wildareas-v2:wildareas-v2-last-of-the-wild-geographic

    Dear Sirs, recently I published an essay over Architecture evolution in which, in its central part, a chapter is devoted to build mass evolution. Inside It I intend to explain how will be and how should be the transformation of human space on earth. The essay is available for free download at http://www.matiassambarino.com/publications/archessay.htm
    Your work is cited on page 9 and 65. Also in page 65 is edited one of your maps.
    Related with the topic, in Appendix 3, lay the foundation ¨Global Urbanism¨
    Thank you very much,

    Matias Sambarino

  9. Make a key for the units that are being graphed.

    It's hard to figure out what the different colors represent. You should create a key for easier understanding.

    i see the page you are referring to — are you referring to the scrolling map widget? if so, are you aware that clicking on it brings up the map full screen with the legend?

    perhaps we need to make it clearer that the widget is a clickable preview.

  10. missing link

    I am looking for this document, but the link is not working:
    Honduras
    Robles, M. in collaboration with BID/SDS/POV/MECOVI - INE Honduras (2003)."Estimacion de Indicadores de pobreza y desigualdad a nivel municipal en Honduras", pp. 44. [Document]

    I accessed it yesterday and worked fine, tried to download it but it didn't complete the download.

    There are other links in the same are of the website that do not function. Any idea about what happened?

  14. Upgrade China Data

    Why are the China administrative boundaries (county level) vector files not upgraded? The files mostly date from around 1990, which is archaic not only in the case of China.
    Please let me know if more recent versions of this data exist.
    Regards

    SEDAC China admin boundary data in 1990 and 1995 are historically unique.
    We don’t have resource to acquire or to create the data set for more recent years and to make them freely available.
    He/she could purchase data sets for more recent years from UM China data center.

  15. add data set to Agriculture theme

    This one is missing: Effects of Climate Change on Global Food Production from SRES Emissions and Socioeconomic Scenarios, v 1 (1970 – 2000)

    On the tools page, there is no indication there is anything below the map, so people may not realize they are there. Add links from the top?

  18. Overall Comments from John Moses

    1) SEDAC is about socioeconomic data services: could actually say that under the title; also when I move the cursor over the DATA there is no drop down that shows the major data categories/groupings or just the complete list (I don’t think there are that many) – e.g., like there is for MAPS and THEMES. Users may not initially realize the map client shows an example of data – would be useful to explain in a few words where it fits within the context of all of SEDAC datasets – this linkage is what appears to be missing. Just a…

  19. Tools page feedback

    The Tools descriptions under the SEDAC Map Client are very long at http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu:8080/tools
    I suggest you shorten the description word count, so it is easier to read

    Also, I am not sure I understand what the flickr community side bar stands for? I think its ultra cool to get the flickr community involved with CIESIN spatial maps. So I guess I am very intrigued to see how the community is using these maps and perhaps sharing their comments.

  20. include some brief blurb - maybe 2 or 3 sentences - describing the overall mission of SEDAC

    Larry Gorenflo - ljg11@psu.edu - I think the homepage does a good job of conveying what SEDAC is about. You might want to include some brief blurb maybe 2 or 3 sentences describing the overall mission of SEDAC and how it fits into CIESIN, or just what the aim of SECAC is. I don't think this is particularly important for many people using the site, as they likely already know and are just signing on for specific purposes (downloading data, looking at maps, etc.), but in terms of what SEDAC is about you could provide a brief synopsis and then…
