Abstract: The Degree of Urbanisation Grid (DUG) Tool (– version 3.0) is an information system developed in the framework of the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) to produce geospatial grids to map settlement classes and extract related statistics. The settlement classes are derived from the “Degree of Urbanisation” method and ported to the GHSL environment through the GHSL Settlement Mode (GHSL SMOD)l. The DUG 3.0 is designed as a scalable tool allowing the application of the GHSL Settlement Model to the input data available to the user or to data made available in the GHSL Data Package 2019. This document contains the description of the DUG Tool use, the rationale of the differentiation between settlement classes and the comprehensive description of the outputs. The tool is a capacity enhancement asset in the framework of the multi-stakeholder effort to develop a people-based harmonised definition of cities and settlements that helps the assessment of the feasibility of applying a global definition of cities/urban areas in support of global monitoring of SDGs and the New Urban Agenda urban targets
