LandScan 2014 Global Population Database Released by East View

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota--September 8, 2015--East View is pleased to announce our worldwide release of the LandScan 2014 Global Population Database.

LandScan is developed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the United States Department of Defense.  Annually updated since the year 2000, this represents the 16th version of LandScan.

This award-winning database provides the ambient population distribution at a high resolution of one square kilometer covering all inhabited land mass on Earth.

For this new release, very special attention was given to Ukraine and the Middle East where ongoing conflict has presented significant challenges for calculating the population distribution values.

East View is the exclusive worldwide distributor of LandScan, fulfilling the population data needs of individual researchers, academic institutions, government agencies, humanitarian organizations and businesses around the world.

Notable improvements in this new release include:

  • Updated results from the 2010-2014 rounds of census activities for numerous countries were integrated into this new version of LandScan, significantly refining the population distribution.
  • Population totals and distributions of Ukraine, Syria and Iraq were adjusted to account for internally displaced people and refugee movement as of May 2015.
  • Results from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory's "LandScan HD" database, recently developed at a high resolution of 3 arc-seconds, were aggregated and incorporated into the LandScan 2014 Global Population Database for specific national and regional areas.
  • Imagery provided by the NGA from Digital Globe and other high-resolution imagery sources was used extensively for verification and validation to improve the spatial precision and values of the population distribution.
