ESA maps global urban habitation patterns
from Geospatial World
ESA (European Space Agency) has created World Settlement Footprint 2015 (WSF-2015), which is the world’s first map that combines radar data and satellite imagery for providing an overview of human habitation patterns globally. Massive migration to urban areas, in search for better prospects, is growing at a rapid pace and it is expected that by 2050 over 70% of the world’s population would dwell in urban areas.
