The data are available in GeoTIFF (.tif), and Esri Grid (.adf) formats. Raster cell sizes are 5 arc-minutes or 0.08333 decimal degrees (~10 km on a side at the equator). The Esri Grids include a layer file for proper rendering of anthropogenic biome classifications. To download the data and readme file from a zip file, click on the links below.
