EarthTrends Environmental Information Portal

The World Resources Institute has launched "EarthTrends," an online database of environmental data for virtually every location in the world. Look up marine, population, water, economic, agricultural, climate and other data by country, continent, or economic level (developed vs. developing). Also access maps, country profiles and general articles. Data tables are downloadable as comma-delimited (.CSV) files.
