Abstract: The GEO Human Planet Initiative is committed to developing a new generation of measurements and information products that provide new scientific evidence and a comprehensive understanding of the human presence on the planet and that can support global policy processes with agreed, actionable and goal-driven metrics. The Human Planet Initiative relies on a core set of partners committed in coordinating the production of the global settlement spatial baseline data, and an enlarged community of partners developing experimental activities on using the new baseline data for derived post-2015 indicators. One of the core partners is the European Commission, Directorate General Joint Research Centre, Global Human Settlement Layer project. The Global Human Settlement Layer project produces global spatial information, evidence-based analytics, and knowledge describing the human presence in the planet. This document describes the Community pre-Release of the GHSL Data Package 2018 - GHS CR2018 - created for the members of the GEO Human Planet Initiative. The data in this data package have the purpose to gather feedbacks from the GEO Human Planet Initiative community, in preparation for the public release of these data.
