Global GIS Database: Complete Global CD-ROM Set
P. Hearn, Jr., T. Hare, et. al.
The complete set of the Global GIS CD-ROMs. Extensive coverage is provided of all of the continents on the planet except for Antarctica. The set makes a complete atlas of global data compiled from USGS and other data sources at a nominal scale of 1:1,000,000 and is intended as a regional-scale reference and analytical tool by educators, government officials, researchers, industry, and the general public.
The atlas contains the following datasets:
- Country political boundaries
- Digital shaded relief map
- Hydrology (rivers, streams, springs, wells)
- Locations of cities and towns
- Utility lines
- Population density
- Ecological Regions
- Historical seismicity (epicenter locations)
- Ore Deposits
The Global GIS database is designed to be used with the full version of ArcView 3.0 or higher, or the included free software, ArcView Data Publisher. The CD contains a suite of customized ArcView tools specifically designed for the datasets, making it useful for beginners or advanced GIS users. Full support and documentation are available online on our Global GIS Homepage.
ArcView Data Publisher 3.1 works in Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows 95/98/ME and requires at least a Pentium microprocessor and at least 24 MB of RAM (64 MB recommended), and 34 MB hard disk space (600 MB recommended).
