HANZE gridded maps of land use, population, GDP and wealth in Europe, 1870-2020



The dataset provides information on exposure to natural hazards for 37 European countries and territories from 1870 to 2020 in 100 m resolution. The database was constructed using high-resolution maps of present land use and population, a large compilation of historical statistics, and relatively simple and explicit models and disaggregation techniques. It can be utilized to study changes in exposure, vulnerability and risk to various natural hazards.
