Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1): Urban Extent Polygons, Revision 01

Metadata Updated: November 5, 2019

The Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1): Urban Extent Polygons, Revision 01 includes new settlements and represents the first time that SEDAC has released polygons (in Esri shapefile format) with the settlement name (or name of the largest city in the case of multi-city agglomerations). The shapefile consists of polygons defined by the extent of the nighttime lights and approximated urban extents (circles) based on buffered settlement points. Revision 01 also includes new urban extents identified from multiple sources, and also corrects the georeferencing for some settlements (see separate documentation for Global Rural-Urban Mapping Project, Version 1 (GRUMPv1): Settlement Points, Revision 01 for the data and methods). Revision 01 was produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with CUNY Institute for Demographic Research (CIDR).
