This map shows the land surface resized by its amount of pasture. Each transformed grid cell in the map is proportional to the total area used as pasture land (land used to support grazing animals).
This map uses estimates for the year 2000 based on the Pastures, v1 dataset at 0.008333 degree resolution, published in 2010 by SEDAC (Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center).
