      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.

        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.

      • 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!

          • I don't find 'community' particularly useful

            Larry Gorenflo - ljg11@psu.edu - I don't find 'community' particularly useful in this context, in that it already appears as a technical term in the ecology and socioeconomic work that I generally do (and that a lot of users of SEDAC, I suspect, also generally do). That stated, I think the secondary headers work well in that they serve to guide users into the site from other angles. I think in general it is a good part of your beta site. Sorry, but again I don't have any real organizational  recommendations or useful comments. Well, except that I suppose one…

            • 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…

              • 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

                • 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.

                  • 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?

                    • Resources Page feedback

                      At http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu:8080/resources, what is the difference between Reports and Guides? Their titles seem quite similar. Please note, none of the Report links seem to work.

                      Also, do the links represent SEDAC partners? Perhaps a more specific title or caption would help further elaborate that.

                      • 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.

                          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,

                            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…

                              The data title text varies between bold and not bold. It would be better to have just one style (preferably bold).

                                Issue is due to minor font size changes in titles, which are done on purpose. It only appears like this on Windows XP without cleartype, Windows Vista and above, as well as OS X & Linux handle font rendering properly, so we will keep it as is since XP users will be phased out.

                                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.

                                  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.

                                    • Link titles of the data sets in the catalog

                                      The "more" button is too small and obscure. Most people will want to click on the title for a full profile of the data set.
