Atlas of Urban Expansion, documenting growth for 120 cities around the world

New to me, a global Atlas of Urban Expansion, from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.  Global coverage from 120 cities, looking at land use / land cover changes over the period of 1990-2000, plus 30 cities with more detailed data from the 1800s!

It’s not just my natural tendency to grasp at any (seemingly authentic, authoritative, research-based, value-added, FREE, downloadable) GIS data that I appreciate from this site.  I also like their documentation of their attributes of urban expansion and description of their metrics, so we can see how these data were derived.

Thank you, LILP, for making your work available to us!
