Mapping Land Cover in Secondary Cities in Central America: 2014 Land Cover Classification of San Isidro, Costa Rica

Primary tabs

This raster file represents a land cover classification in San Isidro based off satellite imagery from December 23, 2014.

This land cover classification was used in the following report: Mapping Land Cover in Secondary Cities in Central America.

This work was initiated as an analytical effort to fill a gap on spatial form of secondary cities. While this is an independent output, this work is tightly linked to the work done under the Central America Urbanization Review. The analysis here described, was used as an input in the definition of urban agglomerations used in the Urbanization Review. The detailed analysis on secondary cities is seen as a complement to the work carried out in the Urbanization Review, in that it zooms into what is happening within a set of cities. The Urbanization Review instead provides a broader look at the system of cities in Central America, highlighting the key bottlenecks the regions faces in moving toward more inclusive, productive, and resilient cities.
