A new European settlement map from optical remotely sensed data

  
IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, Vol. 9, No. 5. (May 2016), pp. 1978-1992, https://doi.org/10.1109/jstars.2015.2485662

Abstract

An application of a general methodology for processing very high-resolution imagery to produce a European Settlement Map (ESM) in support of policy-makers is presented. The process mapped around 10 million km2 of the European continent. The input image data are satellite SPOT-5/6 pan-sharpened multispectral images of 2.5- and 1.5-m spatial resolution, respectively. This is the first time that remote sensing technology demonstrates capability to produce a continental information layer using 2.5-m input images. Moreover, it is the highest resolution continental map ...

 

Inter-sensor comparison of built-up derived from Landsat, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2 and SPOT5/SPOT6 over selected cities

  

Abstract

In the last 5 years, several information layers describing human settlements were developed within the Global Human Settlement infrastructure of the Joint Research Centre using Earth Observation data. Each layer was derived from a different satellite (with different various spatial resolutions and radiometric properties) and from images acquired at different time stamps. The next step is to exploit the synergies between the different sensors and possibly integrate the information layers within a single product. To enable those future developments, it is ...

 

Compact or spread? A quantitative spatial model of urban areas in Europe since 1990

  
PLOS ONE, Vol. 13, No. 2. (28 February 2018), e0192326, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0192326

Abstract

Changes in urban residential density represent an important issue in terms of land consumption, the conservation of ecosystems, air quality and related human health problems, as well as the consequential challenges for urban and regional planning. It is the decline of residential densities, in particular, that has often been used as the very definition of sprawl, describing a phenomenon that has been extensively studied in the United States and in Western Europe. Whilst these studies provide valuable insights into urbanization processes, ...

 

A global human settlement layer from optical HR/VHR RS data: concept and first results

  
IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, Vol. 6, No. 5. (October 2013), pp. 2102-2131, https://doi.org/10.1109/jstars.2013.2271445

Abstract

A general framework for processing high and very-high resolution imagery in support of a Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) is presented together with a discussion on the results of the first operational test of the production workflow. The test involved the mapping of 24.3 million km2 of the Earth surface spread in four continents, corresponding to an estimated population of 1.3 billion people in 2010. The resolution of the input image data ranges from 0.5 to 10 meters, collected by a ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
