This section provides a list of the interactive visualisations of the different GHSL data sets:
Showcase of the new GHSL built-up
(1975-2018, preliminary data)
This visualisation showcases the new GHSL description of global built-up (GHS-BUILT) relying on novel classification methods applied for joint assessment of Sentinel-2 and Landsat data for 2018, 2014, 2000, 1990, and 1975.
(1975-2015, release GHS P2019)
This visualisation includes GHSL baseline data on built-up area and population as well as the settlement model that is the basis for the discussions on the global definition of cities and settlements.
European Settlement Map
(2015, release 2019)
The European Settlement Map includes the built-up area mapping for all EEA39 countries derived from very-high spatial resolution satellites imagery provided by the Copernicus program.
1 km grids maps - produced in the frame of the ENACT project, ENhancing ACTivity and population mapping - representing estimated population distribution in daytime and nighttime per month (i.e. total of 24 grids).
The project aimed at producing consistent, seamless, multi-temporal, high-resolution and validated population density grids for Europe taking into account major daily and monthly variations.
