Description

This data set contains coarse scale elevation and elevation-based parameters at 1.0 and 0.5-degree spatial resolutions that were developed to support a wide variety of global modeling activities through the International Satellite Land Surface Climatology Project (ISLSCP) Initiative II data collection. These coarse scale data have sufficient statistical information (up to fourth moment) to allow a good statistical description of the sub-cell distribution of any particular elevation parameter (i.e. elevation, slope and aspect). The database used in the development effort was the HYDRO1k product (http://eros.usgs.gov/#/Find_Data/Products_and_Data_Available/HYDRO1K) with a native spatial resolution of 1 km, the highest resolution database of global coverage of standard elevation-based derivatives (slope, aspect, elevation, compound topographic index, etc.).
