Urban morphological zones 1990 (UMZ1990)

Note: new version is available!
F2v0 - Urban morphological zones (UMZ) are defined by Corine land cover classes considered to contribute to the urban tissue and function

GIS data

Zipped shapefile, vector data, polygon

Shapefile extracted from the UMZ1990_F2v0 geodatabase

Methodology

Note

For the creation of UMZ1990, the procedual steps have been exactly the same as the ones described in the methodology pdf for UMZ2000 (UMZ2000_F1v0_Methodology). The reason why is that the second version of the UMZ1990 dataset was created at the same time as the UMZ2000 dataset
