- To provide high-resolution population and urban classification data for India for 2011.
- The Spatial Data from the 2011 India Census contains gridded estimates of India population at a resolution of 1 kilometer along with two spatial renderings of urban areas, one based on the official tabulations of population and settlement type (statutory town, outgrowth, census town), and the second, remotely-sensed measures of built-up land derived from the Global Human Settlement Layer. This data set includes a constructed hybrid representation of the urban settlement continuum by cross-classifying the census and remotely-sensed data.
