Abstract: Continuous global-scale mapping of human settlements in the service of international agreements calls for massive volume of multi-source, multi-temporal and multi-scale earth observation data. In this paper, the latest developments in terms of processing big earth observation data for the purpose of improving the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) data are presented. Two experiments with Sentinel-1 and Landsat data collections were run leveraging on the Joint Research Centre (JRC) Earth Observation Data and Processing Platform (JEODPP). A comparative analysis of the results of built-up areas extraction from different remote sensing data and processing workflows shows how the information production supported by data-intensive computing infrastructure for optimization and multiple testing can improve the output information reliability and consistency within the GHSL scope. The paper presents the processing workflows and the results of the two main experiments giving insights into the enhanced mapping capabilities gained by analyzing Sentinel-1 and Landsat datasets, and the lessons learnt in terms of handling and processing big earth observation data
