Data accessibility:visualization of data (e.g. web GIS or real time monitoring)
Link to the data:
File type:GeoTIFF, webmap
Data type:baseline data
Disaster cycle phase:Disaster Risk Management, Response, Recovery
Space-based Information:The Global Urban Footprint (GUF) dataset shows the human settlements pattern in urban and rural environments in a so far unprecedented spatial resolution of about 12m per raster cell (0.4 arcseconds). A second version of the product is available in 2.8 arcseconds raster cell resolution (about 84 m).
The TimeScan layers represent higher-processing level baseline products providing a harmonized representation of the spectral (optical data) or backscatter-related (SAR) properties over a defined period of time.
The Global Urban Footprint + Evolution (GUF+ Evo) collection shows the status of the urban extent for the years 2015-2010-2000-1990. The GUF+ Evo facilitates the analysis of urban growth.
U-Tep Products: This application allows to visualise and inspect all U-TEP products and data from external sources in the geobrowser.
