  "description": "<p>This dataset features a map of building types for Germany on a 10m grid based on Sentinel-1A/B and Sentinel-2A/B time series. A random forest classification was used to map the predominant type of buildings within a pixel. We distinguish single-family residential buildings, multi-family residential buildings, commercial and industrial buildings and lightweight structures. Building types were predicted for all pixels where building density &gt; 25 %. Please refer to the publication for details.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Temporal extent</strong></p>\n\n<p>Sentinel-2 time series data are from 2018. Sentinel-1 time series data are from 2017.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Data format</strong></p>\n\n<p>The data come in tiles of 30x30km (see shapefile). The projection is EPSG:3035. The images are compressed GeoTiff files (*.tif). Metadata are located within the Tiff, partly in the FORCE domain. There is a mosaic in GDAL Virtual format (*.vrt), which can readily be opened in most Geographic Information Systems. Building type values are categorical, according to the following scheme:</p>\n\n<p>0 - No building</p>\n\n<p>1 - Commercial and industrial buildings</p>\n\n<p>2 - Single-family residential buildings</p>\n\n<p>3 - Lightweight structures</p>\n\n<p>4 - Multi-family residential buildings</p>\n\n<p><strong>Further information</strong></p>\n\n<p>For further information, please see the publication or contact Franz Schug (franz.schug@geo.hu-berlin.de).<br>\nA web-visualization of this dataset is available <a href=\"https://ows.geo.hu-berlin.de/webviewer/population/\">here</a>.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Publication</strong></p>\n\n<p>Schug, F., Frantz, D., van der Linden, S., &amp; Hostert, P.
