Data: Impacts

We encourage visitors to read the Supplementary Online Materials for detailed information pertaining to the creation of these data layers
 
 
If you're an ArcGIS 10 user, you'll need to build pyramids to see these datasets, or zoom in to the dataset scale: ESRI changed the format for Pyramids, and these files use the older format. After recreating the pyramids, the datasets should display as expected.

* The raw data can be located by contacting the FAO .

** These files are compressed using 7zip

*** These file formats are not available for these layers
**** The SST raw data is available from NOAA .

NOTE on commercial fishing data layers: These raw data were produced by Sea Around Us project but are no longer supported by them.  In the near future they will be launching catch reconstruction data that are intended to replace these older data.  Please visit their website for more information on their catch reconstruction project.

All data files have been checked for quality.  If you are unable to open the data, please seek technical help from your institution.
