The United Nations estimates that as many as one billion (one in eight) people live in slums worldwide. The cover image illustrates variations in slum populations across the world. The size of the discs represents total urban population per nation, expressing the combined effect of total population and levels of urbanization per country. The red portion of each disc represents the percentage of the urban population that lives in slums in each country, capturing variations across and within continents (compare e.g., Africa to South America, and sub-Saharan to north Africa). With accelerated rates of global urbanization we are facing a pressing need to identify suitable data (e.g., remote sensing and volunteer geographic information) and methods (e.g., data mining) for mapping and monitoring slums.
