Short Description

Maps of GLDUM-predicted cropland area (Figure 8 in Haney and Cohen 2015)

Statement: Global Cropland Area predictions by the GLDUM model

Abstract: An output of the Global Land Use Dynamics Model (GLUDM). Spatially explicit global estimates of cropland area between 1960-2099. Yearly time steps in individual NetCDF files.

The GLDUM is based on pixel-specific regression between historic land use changes and global population. Land use expansion and abandonment is governed by environmental and land use restrictions (e.g altitude and urbanization).
