The UrbanShift data team works closely with beneficiary cities to identify, provide and analyze geospatial layers and key sustainability indicators, serving to highlight critical urban challenges and suggest integrated solutions backed by data. Browse our data products below.


The Data Hub provides cities with a common set of critical geospatial layers related to urban biodiversity, land degradation and GHG emissions. Derived from globally scalable and transferable methods (remote sensing, machine leaning, and crowdsourced data), the goal of these layers is to supplement locally available data as well as offer a comparative analytical paradigm for UrbanShift cities. Where possible, the data stacks are published under a public and open-source license, enabling use and reuse by city governments and other stakeholders. Visit the Data Hub.


To help understand the status of sustainability indicators in UrbanShift cities, such as access to green space and climate mitigation, and identify existing and potential challenges, we measure key baseline indicators using comparable approaches. The objective of these indicators is to assess the status and trends of change within each city, providing information to distinguish patterns within and between cities and assist in detecting problems and defining solutions.
