Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The maps show the water footprints of crops on a spatial resolution level of 5 by 5 arc minute. The data shown are averages over the period 1996-2005. The data are shown in mm/yr and have been calculated by dividing the total water footprint per grid cell (in m3/yr) by the area of the grid cell.
