GRID3 South Africa Settlement Extents Version 01, Alpha

Center for International Earth Science Information Network; Novel-T

NOTE: This initial version of the South Africa settlement extents has been superseded by the final version, "GRID3 South Africa Settlement Extents, Version 01", now available here: https://doi.org/10.7916/d8-gj76-nz77

The database constitutes a comprehensive set of settlement polygons nationwide. It is in geodatabase format and consists of three feature classes for built up areas (BUA), small settlement areas (SSA), and hamlets (hamlets).

This work has been undertaken as part of the Geo-referenced Infrastructure and Demographic Data for Development (GRID3) programme.

GRID3 works with countries to generate, validate and use geospatial data on population, settlements, infrastructure, and subnational boundaries. For more information, see https://grid3.org/
