Title: INPUT - European Population Map 2006

Description

The European Population Map 2006 is a digital raster grid that reports the number of residents (night-time population) per 100 x 100 meter cells. It has been produced by downscaling census population data, at the finest available resolution, to the 100m grid cell level given pycnophylactic constraints. This downscaling is done by using data on land uses (a refined version of the Corine land cover 2006) and soil-sealing.
