Net land take as a result of urban sprawl is measured from the Copernicus Corine Land Cover dataset between 2000-2018. The map shows for each grid cell the area in km² which was covered with sealed surfaces. For visualisation land take data is presented in a 10km grid.

European data


Additional information

The map presents fragmentation increase after outliers have been removed using the 5 and 90 percentiles thresholds.

The orginal data which statistics are derived from is from the 100m spatila resolution CLC dataset series. Se also: Land take indicator (LSI001).
