Monitoring Urbanization in Latin American Metropolitan Areas

Satellite EO allows standardized diagnostics to assess factors driving spatial development in metropolitan areas and cross-country metro-level comparisons. Spatial extension of urban areas is key to diagnosing cities’ challenges and providing appropriate policy recommendations. Using a common methodology based on a morphological approach can allow for comparability across countries and cities and will be the basis to develop indicators and rankings that give cities the possibility to monitor their performance and progress. Associated statistical information is used to calculate and understand evolution of different land use classes and can be subsequently correlated with economic and social data available at the administrative level units.
