The Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) is a project funded by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre, which aims at providing scientific methods and systems for reliable and automatic mapping of built-up areas from remote sensing data. In the frame of the GHSL, the opportunities offered by Sentinel-2 data are explored using a novel image classification method, called Symbolic Machine Learning (SML). The results show the added-value of Sentinel-2 with respect to Landsat for improving global high-resolution human settlement mapping. They also demonstrate that with the global coverage of Sentinel-2 data, new opportunities exist to confront the global human settlement challenges thanks to the possibility of mapping built-up areas, their heterogeneities, dynamics and interactions with the environment.
