The GMES Bureau is organising an exhibition on Urban Atlas from 15th till 30th April in the Berlaymont Piazza.

Urban Atlas is a digital mapping tool providing pan-European, reliable and inter-comparable urban planning data.

Compiled from thousands of pictures from European satellites, Urban Atlas provides coverage for detailed and cost-effective mapping of larger urban zones, yielding accurate land cover and usage data. Urban Atlas’ mission is to provide high-resolution hotspot mapping of changes in urban spaces and decision-support indicators for users such as city governments, the European Environment Agency (EEA) and European Commission departments.

Urban Atlas falls within the Land Monitoring of GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security).
