Historical global population density from the HYDE model version 3.0. Native resolution is 5 arcmin with Geographic Coordinate System WGS 1984.

Processing Procedure

1. In ArcMap 10.0, convert native data to 30 arc second resolution aligned with GLOBE Land Unit grid.

2. Extrapolated using a neighborhood of 30 x 30 cells.

3. Used the logical ‘pick’ function to merged the native data over its original extent with the extrapolated data in the extrapolated areas.

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