Atlases of the Human Planet

The City Centres Database describes more than 10.000 urban centres identified by the application of the "Degree of Urbanization" model to the GHSL baseline data.

This dataset is a successful result of the scientific cooperation among the partners of the GEO Human Planet Initiative. The partners are committed to support a novel evidence-based assessment of the human presence on the planet.

The City Centres Database provides new open data supporting the monitoring of Sustainable Development Goals, the New Urban Agenda and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction.

Currently the City Centres Database is available for visualisation on the GHSL website only. The Dataset will be consolidated and released during 2018.
