  <dc:description>This datatset contains a land use classification of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) at the street block level. It was created following the methodology presented in [1].

Description of the files:

	"Ouagadougou_landuse.gpkg" : GeoPackage with two layers: (1) layer of the street blocks extracted from OpenStreetMap using [2] with classification results in the attribute table. (2) layer with manual correction made by GEORGANOS Stefanos (
	"" : Files for style for rendering in QGIS.

Attribute table content:

	"CAT", "GID" : ID of the street block
	"PROB_ACS" : Probability to belong to class ACS
	"PROB_BARE" : Probability to belong to class BARE
	"PROB_PLAN" : Probability to belong to class PLAN
	"PROB_UNPLA" : Probability to belong to class UNPLAN
	"PROB_VEG" : Probability to belong to class VEG
	"FIRST_LABE" : Class with the highest classification probability
	"SEC_LABEL" : Class with the second highest classification probability
	"FIRST_PROB" : Value of the highest classification probability
	"SEC_PROB" : Value of the second highest classification probability
	"UNCERTAIN" : Difference between "FIRST_PROB" and "SEC_PROB"
	"BUILT_PERC" : Percentage of the street blocks covered by built-up (from land cover map)
	"MAP_LABEL" : Final classification label with uncertainty and different density classes. Depending on the layer, the label is with or without manual corrections

Legend classes label:

	"VEG" : Vegetation
	"BARE" : Bare soils
	"ACS" : Non-residential built-up (administrative, commercial, services, etc.)
	"PLAN" : Planned residential built-up
	"PLAN_LD" : Planned residential low density built-up
	"UNPLAN" : Unplanned residential built-up
	"UNPLAN_LD" : Unplanned residential low density built-up
	"UNCERT" : Uncertain classification
	"WET" : Wetlands
	"AGRI" : Agricultural land
