Multi-temporal information layer on the presence of built-up surfaces derived from global Landsat satellite data collected from 1975 to 2014, at the native spatial resolution varying from 80 meters (Landsat MSS sensor), 30 meters (Landsat TM sensor), and 15/30 meters (Landsat ETM sensor). The image data collections were prepared by the Global Land Survey (GLS1975, GLS1990, GLS2000) and by the JRC (Landsat 8 collection for 2014). The data was processed by fully automatic and reproducible methods based on statistical learning (Symbolic Machine Learning). No manual or ad-hoc rule-based editing of the results was applied in the post-processing. The product it is provided with a spatial resolution of 30 meters.
