Download GLOBIO4 scenario data

The GLOBIO4 model produces spatial datasets with scenario outcomes for land use/cover and mean species abundance (MSA) for plants, warm blooded vertebrates (birds and mammals) and an overall MSA. For selected papers and contributions to global assessments these datasets are made available for download here. The GLOBIO4 scenario data is provided under a Creative Commons License (CC-BY 4.0) and is free to use. All global model output datasets are in GeoTif raster format and use the WGS84 coordinate system on a 10 arcsecond spatial resolution, this roughly equals 300 x 300 meter at the equator.

When using the GLOBIO4 scenario data, citations and acknowledgements could be made to the suggested papers below and references included in the zipfiles.
