The European Urban Atlas provides reliable, inter-comparable, high-resolution land use maps for over 300 Large Urban Zones and their surroundings (more than 100.000 inhabitants as defined by the Urban Audit) for the 2006 reference year in EU member states and for over 800 Functional Urban Area (FUA) and their surroundings (more than 50.000 inhabitants) for the 2012 reference year in EEA39. Two additional layers were produced for the 2012 reference year: 1) Street Tree Layer within selected FUAs (depending on availability and suitability of satellite imagery) and 2) Building Heights for core urban areas of selected cities. Change layers were produced in 2012 and only for all FUAs covered both in 2006 and 2012 reference years.
