Those who have already been approved for funding may still submit reimbursement requests.

LandScan 2012 now available

UCB patrons can now access the 2012 LandScan data through EastView Cartographic?s web interface. Oak Ridge National Laboratory produces the annual LandScan datasets through population modeling algorithms, creating a roughly 1km resolution global population distribution map. The LandScan Global Archive data is available for the years from 2000 to 2012. The data can be explored directly through EastView’s web map interface. Alternatively, you can download datasets by country or through a user-defined custom area for use in a GIS program.
