GHSL tools

AAXY tools cover

The GHSL framework aims to provide innovative spatial data mining technologies for the automatic processing, analytics and knowledge extraction from large amount of heterogeneous spatial data.

The tools developed and used by the GHSL to produce new global information that is contributing to new global findings together with our data mining technologies are openly documented and are freely available for the user and the scientific communities.

This policy aims to improve the reproducibility of the GHSL results, and their scientific and public test by independent parties. The free availability of the analytical tools aims to facilitate the exploitation of the research and development efforts made by the EC JRC, to decrease the information production cost, facilitate the information sharing, and to democratize the information production also in case of large and complex spatial data analytics scenarios.

New tool released: GHS-POPWARP, Population Warping tool.
GHS-POPWARP is a tool for coordinate system conversion of population grids that preserves total volume and reduces distortions.

DEGURBA tool suite update: GHS-POP2G; GHS-DUG; GHS-DU-TUC tools are now fully aligned to the operational DEGURBA as described in the forthcoming “Applying the Degree of Urbanisation” manual (European Union/FAO/UN-Habitat/OECD/World Bank, 2021).

The terms and conditions for using our tools can be found in the end user licence agreement.
