Cities built-up panels

Primary tabs

The dataset Panel_Built-up is a panel of cities, as defined in Bird and Brandily (2018). The base data comes from the Global Human Settlement (GHS) built-up layers produced by the European Commission Joint Research Centre. These layers depict built-up land at a precise resolution (a 38x38m grid) all over the globe at four specific points in time, 1975, 1990, 2000 and 2014.
