GHS - Building Height 2018

This raster dataset depicts the distribution of the building heights, as Average of the Net Building Height (ANBH), generalized at the resolution of 100m, and referred to the year 2018. The input data used to predict the building heights are the ALOS Global Digital Surface Model "ALOS World 3D - 30m (AW3D30)25, the NASA Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission data - 30m (SRTM30)26 , and the Sentinel-2 global pixel based image composite from L1C data for the period 2017-201827 that is the support of the year 2018 in this release.
