In this paper we propose to identify the number of urban categories that can be retrieved from very high resolution TerraSAR-X data. For this task a semi-automated procedure was built in order to search in large Earth Observation database for similar sub-images (i.e. patches) and group them in the same semantic category. The dataset consists of 39 scenes over the world: 18 scenes in Asia, 15 scenes in Europe, 5 scenes in North and South America, and 1 scene in Africa. These scenes are grouped in three different types of collections (a total of 16 collections are generated) and the semantic categories in each collection are retrieved. A total of 320 categories are identified and those that contain man-made structures in the urban area are kept and the rest of categories (e.g., agriculture, water, etc.) are discarded. These categories represent between 50% and 65% from the total number of retrieved categories in each collection.
