Reference: An Updated and Expanded “Atlas of Urban Expansion” is Now Available Online
From the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy:
The Atlas of Urban Expansion, an open-source online resource with maps, satellite images, and data on spatial changes in cities around the world, has been revised and updated.
The new database, a partnership of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, UN-Habitat, and New York University, can be accessed via the Atlas of Urban Expansion page at the Lincoln Institute website.
The Atlas of Urban Expansion now features a global sample of 200 cities, representing the universe of all 4,231 cities and metropolitan areas that had 100,000 people or more in 2010. The aim is to provide a scientific understanding of how the world’s cities are growing, and to measure performance and identify trends in the implementation of the New Urban Agenda following the Habitat III global cities summit in Quito, Ecuador in October 2016.
Related publications available at the Lincoln Institute website include the Atlas of Urban Expansion 2016 Volume I and Volume II; Planet of Cities (2012); Atlas of Urban Expansion (2012); and the Policy Focus Report Making Room for a Planet of Cities (2011).
