Global Grid of Probabilities of Urban Expansion to 2030
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_LULC_PUEXPANS_2030_1.0


Summary
Abstract: The Global Grid of Probabilities of Urban Expansion to 2030 presents spatially explicit probabilistic forecasts of global urban land cover change from 2000 to 2030 at a 2.5 arc-minute resolution. For each grid cell that is non-urban in 2000, a Monte-Carlo model assigned a probability of becoming urban by the year 2030. The authors first extracted urban extent circa 2000 from the NASA MODIS Land ... View entire text
