Mapping land use in peri-urban regions

These maps have been produced for PURPLE by the European Environment Agency and are based on Corine Land Cover data combined with NUTS boundary information. They show the mix of urban and rural, which is a defiining feature of peri-urban locations by plotting the artificial cover of the Urban Morphological Zones together with open space (forests, wetlands, agricultural areas etc).
