GlobES – 1-km Resolution Global Ecosystem Data Cube

Dataset Creator Name: Ruben Remelgado
Date of creation: 2020

Global data cube on the yearly extent of ecosystems following the habitat classification scheme of the IUCN Red List, used in the assessment of over 100,000 species. This data cube is composed by 65 ecosystem types and covers the period between 1992 and 2018, where each layer depicts per-pixel areas of a given ecosystem within a given year. ...

Description:

To develop the individual ecosystem maps in the GlobES data cube, we interpreted the interaction of 59 environmental variables that define ecosystem types, which we derived from 24 state-of-the-art, global datasets including remotely sensed and in-situ measurements of vegetation and abiotic land-surface cover, climate, soil, coastal and stream topography, and other environmental dimensions.
