Development and validation of the global map of irrigation areas
Hydrology and Earth System Sciences Discussions
A new version of a digital global map of irrigation areas was developed by combining irrigation statistics for 10 825 sub-national statistical units and geo-spatial information on the location and extent of irrigation schemes. The map shows the percentage of each 5 arc minute by 5 arc minute cell that was equipped for irrigation around the year 2000. It is thus an important data set for global studies related to water and land use. This paper describes the data set and the mapping methodologydoi:10.5194/hessd-2-1299-2005 fatcat:phczxqhzgfgzhcv6jl4m2n5b5e
