Abstract: In this short technical note we describe the production of a set of density maps of facilities and utilities across Europe. This dataset consists of 24 raster grids layers of 500x500 metres with each 500 m2 cell representing the number of Points of Interest (POI) per category, for the 2016 reference year, hereinafter referred as ‘POI density grids’. The work has been carried out in the frame of the Knowledge Centre for Territorial Policies. This dataset was produced in April 2018 in the scope of the collaboration between DG JRC and International Transport Forum (ITF) at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It acts as a think tank for global transport policy issues and organises an annual summit of transport ministers. This work outputs will support the analysis of the spatial structure of regions and cities in terms of the supply of key urban services and amenities and will feed into the LUISA Territorial Modelling Platform. In the next section are described the used datasets and the methods deriving the final density grids. Chapter 3 analysis the output results both thematically and spatially, focusing on Paris as example. The conclusions are presented on the final chapter just before the annexes where detailed statistics can be found.
