Online data: map of global urbanization

This is an interesting data source on urban extent I hadn’t come across yet. It is based on Modis data and available at http://sage.wisc.edu/people/schneider/research/data.html and is described in more detail in an article by Scheider et al. (2009). Also check out their website here for more data sets.
