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.2 votes
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).
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.4 votes
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?1 vote
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.1 vote

After I logged in, filled all the fields (region>global>Pop Density grid>grid>2.5'>2000), and hit "Download", nothing happens. I tried with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.2 votesAdminWebmaster (Webmaster, SEDAC) responded
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.

I am not sure of what color ramp to use to visualise Global Human Footprint appropriately in my maps and legends. Would be great if you would provide a .qml file with style that fits your index.1 vote

The closest way i figured is to download the ascii file and import it as a raster, but it has no spatial reference.

Very large data-sets (e.g., global roads at ~200MB) are very difficult to download at one go when in poor/unreliable bandwidth areas. Suggest one or more of the following:
1. breakup data sets into smaller regional and/or country level chunks
2. allow downloads to resume after interruption
3. use distributed methods of serving data (p2p, torrents, etc) ... this will also reduce your server / bandwidth requirements!4 votes
I downloaded "Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3): Centroids". It is really terrific data! Bravo!
But I must say that I wasn't able to use correctly administrative level names: problems with diacritic symbols (like "ñ", "ç", "à" etc.).
I couldn't identify encoding of data (unicode, ISO8859-1, ?). So please could you give information about this encoding (inside metadata?).
Thanks in advance.

The blue background is confusing, because I associate blue with the color of sea.
It is particularly true of the world map of Flood Hazards, I can not associate easily the colors on the maps, and the colors in the legend.

Do you plan to provide your data layers as REST services?4 votes
By having to download multiple files, 50 records at a time, it increases the chance for error. But also means I need to spend lots of time making sure I got everything.1 voteAdminWebmaster (Webmaster, SEDAC) responded
Hello Leta, we need a little more context. What page, and what list of items are you referring to?
If you want to use SEDAC WMS with openlayers.js, it would be nice to provide a (link to a ) working sample code like http://jsfiddle.net/F9pUs/ (which actually does not show the SEDAC layer)10 votes
This isn't really feedback, but I didn't see another way to contact you about updating the list of small-area estimate studies. I worked with colleagues on a poverty map of the Lao PDR that is not included in the list. Here is the link: http://www.laoatlas.net/links/PDF/The%20Geography%20of%20Poverty%20and%20Inequality%20in%20the%20Lao%20PDR.pdf. Thanks, Nick1 vote
perhaps this can be a snapshot image before trying to load the client everytime someone visits the home page. Click on the snapshot would enable the client or something like that..1 vote
