HANZE netCDF data on land use, population, GDP and wealth in Europe, 1870-2020 (updated)



The dataset provides information on exposure to natural hazards for 37 European countries and territories from 1870 to 2020, regridded to EURO-CORDEX 0.11 degree rotated-pole grid and geographical 5 arc minute grid (WGS84). 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. This page provides a revised version of the netCDF files previously published with the remainder of the HANZE database.
