Title: ESM R2019 - European Settlement Map from Copernicus Very High Resolution data for reference year 2015

Description

The European Settlement Map data is a spatial raster dataset that is mapping human settlements in Europe based on Copernicus Very High Resolution optical coverage for reference year 2015 (VHR_IMAGE_2015). It follows-up on the previous ESM_2012 derived from 2.5 m resolution SPOT-5/6 images acquired in the context of the pan-European GMES/Copernicus (Core_003) dataset for the reference year 2012.

• ESM_BUILT_VHR2015_EUROPE_R2019: classifies the built-up areas at a spatial resolution of 2 meters (EPSG:3035) • ESM_BUILT_VHR2015CLASS_EUROPE_R2019: classifies the built-up areas into residential and non-residential at a spatial resolution of 10 meters (EPSG:3035)
