The spatial data are available in a compressed zip file in raster GeoTIFF format. The archive contains two urban expansion grids. One in geographic coordinates of decimal degrees in the World Geodetic System spheroid of 1984 (WGS84) and one in projected coordinates based on the pseudocylindrical, equal-area, composite map, Goode Homolosine projection.
