|Title:||BUREF – PRODUCING A GLOBAL REFERENCE LAYER OF BUILT-UP BY INTEGRATING POPULATION AND REMOTE SENSING DATA|
|Authors:||PESARESI Martino; CARNEIRO FREIRE SERGIO MANUEL|
|Type:||Articles in periodicals and books|
|Abstract:||The Global Built-up Reference Layer (BUREF2010) is a spatial raster dataset containing an estimation of the distribution and density of built-up areas using publicly available global spatial data related to the year 2010. In particular, satellite-derived land cover information and population density grid are used within a raster model to infer, per each spatial unit, the percentage of land occupied by buildings. The paper briefly outlines the rationale, the most important methodological steps adopted for the production of BUREF and some examples of outputs.|
