Title: Percent Irrigated Area

Source: HYDE

Date: 2000

Citation: Klein Goldewijk, K., A. Beusen, G. van Drecht, and M. de Vos. 2011. The HYDE 3.1 spatially explicit database of human induced global land use change over the past 12,000 years. Global Ecology & Biogeography 20:73-86. [online] URL:


Percent irrigated land cover area per grid cell derived from HYDE land cover data. Native resolution is 0.5° projected in Geographic Coordinate System WGS 1984

Processing Procedure

1. In ArcMap 10.0, convert native data to 30 arc second resolution.

2. Use zonal statistics to calculate mean values within each GLU.

Data Coverage

Data is coded by the number of cells covered by the native data (1), data extrapolation (2), and not covered by either (3).
