Abstract. In this manuscript, we present Version 1.0 of the World Atlas of Last Interglacial Shorelines (WALIS), a global database of sea-level proxies and samples dated to Marine Isotope Stage 5 (~80 to 130 ka). The database includes a series of datasets compiled in the framework of a Special Issue published in this journal (https://essd.copernicus.org/articles/special_issue1055.html). This manuscript collates the individual contributions (archived in Zenodo, https://zenodo.org/communities/walis_database/) into an open-access, standalone database (Rovere et al., 2022, https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6623428). The release of WALIS 1.0 includes complete documentation and scripts to download, analyze, and visualize the data (https://alerovere.github.io/WALIS/). The database contains 4545 sea-level proxies, 4110 dated samples and 280 other time constraints, interconnected with several tables containing accessory data and metadata. By creating a centralized database of sea level proxy data for the Last Interglacial, the WALIS database will be a valuable resource to the wider paleoclimate community to facilitate data-model integration and intercomparisons, assessments of sea level reconstructions between different studies and different regions, as well as comparisons between past sea level history and other paleoclimate proxy data.

Short summary
In this work, we describe WALIS, the World Atlas of Last Interglacial Shorelines. WALIS is a sea-level database, that includes sea-level proxies and samples dated to Marine Isotope Stage 5 (~80 to 130 ka). The database was built through topical data compilations included in a Special Issue in this journal.
