Urbanized Areas

Description

The urbanized areas of Brazil result from the mapping of the urban sprawl in Brazilian cities with the objective of monitoring the process of urbanization of the territory. The mapping of urban sprawl based on the use of satellite images creates a vector layer that delimitates the constructed areas in Brazilian cities. That is a growing demand from society and from the government in an attempt to understand the history of expansion of cities and the geographic dynamics now in progress in the Brazilian territory. The current mapping provides input for the classification and ordering of land, thus contributing to create a national view of issues related to the urban space.
