  1. improving the color chart of the Hazard map

    RE : http://sedac.ciesin.org/maps/client

    Hello,

    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.

    Yours sincerely,

      • Increase the number in your display drop down to "All."

        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.

        • Provide working minimalistic openlayers WMS example

          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)

          • Update the list of small-area estimate studies.

            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, Nick

            • not load the OpenLayers map on the homepage by default

              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..

              • Links

                The website is looking good and easy to navigate!
                Here are few suggestions

                1)When I open map images I find it difficult to navigate back ,either the image can be opened in a new window or there can be navigation menu on top.
                URL:http://beta.sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu:8080/maps/dataset/aglands-croplands-2000

                2)In the Featured Uses on home page, link to read more can be given in the title rather than at the end of the news item

                3)When I click a news on the right side menu bar it would be good if I see information only about the news item rather than all the news.

                • Geographical based searching for data

                  Besides theme, year published, and year of data, can we have geographical coverage? Some users may be looking for data in specific areas, so it would be nice to have that upfront.

                  • List data in one column instead of two

                    The browse and faceted search performs great. My only thought is that it would be better to have the data listed in one column instead of two. Browse could be smaller on this page – then larger once you select your method of access (i.e., Website, download, maps, more….

                    • Map client – needs to point back to the source of the data

                      Map client – needs to point back to the source of the data – e.g. through link that show where the basic data is coming from, or through citation information in legend or label. This would enable readers to get reference documentation as well as getting the source datasets. Also would be useful to be able to print out the map and map metadata.

                      • Fiji Population Density GRID

                        Hi, Would you be able to describe for me how exactly you converted our current enumeration boundaries to a nation wide grid system. I understand that you created this grid for all the countries in the world i just dont understand how you converted our current enumeration area counts to be reflected in your current GPWv3 system.

                        • Add Flickr links to their corresponding collection, set and maps in Flickr.

                          Since all the maps are located on Flickr and follow the same structure SEDAC uses (collections, sets, and individual maps) it would be great if we linked to where we can find this content on Flickr so we can take advantage of Flickr's social networking tools like commenting, grouping, sharing with other Flickr users and even other ones like Facebook, Linkedin, Twittter, etc...
