Built-Settlement Extents, Nigeria

Alpha version of predicted built-settlement extents produced by Built-Settlement Growth Model (BSGM) interpolating for years 2001-2011, 2013 and extrapolating for years 2015-2020. The dataset is available to download in Geotiff format at a resolution of 3 arc (approximately 100m at the equator). The projection is Geographic Coordinate System, WGS84. The binary rasters hold the value 1 and 0. The value 1 indicates the presence of the feature. FILENAMES: {iso}_bsgmi_v0a_100m_{year}.tif - Interpolated built-settlement extents; {iso}_bsgme_v0a_100m_{year}.tif - Extrapolated (future projection) built-settlement extents.
