GLW 3: Gridded Livestock Density (Global - 2010 - 10 km)

This dataset contains peer-reviewed spatial dataset on livestock distribution for applications in development, environment and health. It contains the most up to date version of GLW 3 for the reference year 2010 and the following species: cattle, sheep, goats, buffaloes, horses, pigs, chicken and ducks. The individual species datasets are available at global extent and 5 minutes of arc resolution (approx. 10 km at the equator). GLW 3 mainly differs from previous GLW versions in that the input data has been improved, the downscaling algorithm has been updated (Random Forest) and much more detailed metadata has been provided. All datasets are licensed through a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

The layers contain the density of animals per pixel, with weight estimated by the Random Forest model.
