Applied procedures: Map showing values for urban residential sprawl 1990-2000 (LCF2) computed according to a regional breakdown based on administrative units (NUTS 3) and an accounting grid at 1 km x 1 km resolution for southern Portugal and southwest Spain. Only those cells of the accounting grid that show urban residential sprawl are shown. The legend indicating the extent of residential urban sprawl in each unit is common to the two ways of mapping the land cover flow.
