      • 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.

        • consider removing logins

          Every semester, I required my environmental science college class to go to your website and browse through your biome maps to find their "home" biome. However, since you now require people to create an account, I have had to direct my students to other, lower quality maps elsewhere. I don't want them to have to spend 5 minutes creating a login just to use the site for few minutes and I certainly don't want them to all have to give up their email address. These are students, not data points.

          If the purpose of your site providing information to the…

          • Make the Login dialog box functional

            Hi! I really appreciate the data I get from this website. One annoying aspect of accessing data, however, is the Login process. When I click "Data Download" and I am not logged in, a Notice dialog box pops up that asks me to Login or Register. When I click "Login", I am not taken to any page that allows me to Login. In other words, the dialog box is not functional.

            • Human Influence Index 2005-2014?

              I am looking at the possibility of using the HII to understand anthropogenic impact on North American birds as a part of my graduate research. I noticed that the data available is for 1995-2004 and was wondering if 2005-14 is on the works. SO my questions are: 1. Are you working on HII 2005-14? and 2. If you are, will the data be publicly available? When? Thanks.

                Hi,

                There are plans to update the HII. However, we are waiting for the updates to the input data layers of HII. An updated HII may not be available until next year.

                To be notified of the latest data releases, including HII and related news that may interest you, please consider following SEDAC on twitter (twitter.com/ciesin) or Facebook (Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center).

                • WMS Improvement

                  Thank you for providing yours data and service.

                  I have two suggestion for your server configuration that can improve your WMS

                  1) Can you make the content available via HTTPS? (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Security/MixedContent/How_to_fix_website_with_mixed_content)

                  2) Can you adding CORS support to the server? (http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/cors/#toc-adding-cors-support-to-the-server)

                  Thank you for your kind cooperation.

                    • fill in Northern Pakistan

                      I thought I had a bad download, but the documentation shows a hole in N. Pakistan. This area is filled in VMAP, so it seems like that area could be filled. Is there a version of groads asia that includes this?

                          • ... check the ascii population density (2000) dataset for the Philippines.

                            It appears to be erroneous. It doesn't show the correct map of the Philippines. I had to use the Asia dataset to get the correct map.

                                Thanks for the feedback. Checking it now. It seems to be working on those browsers for me at the moment. Please try downloading again but bypass logging in by using the ’Guest Download" button at the bottom of the login/signup page that comes up after clicking the download button. Hope that makes some sense. Let us know if you continue have problems.

                                      • 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?

                                        • Check the Global Fertilizer and Manure, v1 GeoTIFFs.
