A joint project of the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research and the United Nation's Environmental Programme, Global Methodology for Mapping Human Impacts on the Environment (GLOBIO) aims to "present a simple visual overview of the cumulative impacts of increasing resource demands on man and the environment." Hundreds of environmental impact studies were synthesized with satellite imagery, infrastructure data, etc. to create this "visual overview" of past, current, and potential future conditions. Researchers in the environmental sciences may find the specifics of this recently developed methodology of interest. Users can now download the entire GLOBIO methodology document, as well as an image-rich report titled GLOBIO - The Arctic 2050 Scenario and Global Application.
