It was designed by Oakridge National Laboratory as a geographic information system (GIS) tool for estimating the potential number of people at risk during natural or manmade disasters. Population data is show via detailed 1 km grids. Includes data extraction by country or user customized area. Access to LandScan is through the EVGeoCloud platform. Johns Hopkins users with ArcGIS software on their computer can directly connect to LandScan via WMS or WCS server connections. See our GIS and Maps guide
