The Atlas of Urban Expansion

The Atlas of Urban Expansion, a project of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, UN-Habitat and New York University, was first released in 2012. The atlas gives extensive data about the growth of 200 cities, selected to be a representative sampling of the 4,231 cities and metropolitan areas worldwide that had populations of 100,000 or more in 2010. Data on urban sprawl will be crucial as human beings attempt to accommodate one another on an increasingly crowded globe.
