Aerial coverage of protected areas inventory. Native data is in polygon vector format projected in Geographic Coordinate System WGS 1984.
1. In ArcMap 10.0, convert native data to 30 arc second resolution raster.
2. Use zonal statistics to calculate mean values within each GLU.
No coverage assessment was performed for this dataset because it is not meant to have global coverage (protected areas are discrete places).
