The main goal of the TanDEM-X mission (TDM) is the generation of a global digital elevation model (DEM). The global SAR dataset, which is made available in the context of the TDM, is also used to create a global human settlement layer, the Global Urban Footprint (GUF). This paper presents a first large area cross comparison between the Global Urban Footprint and existing human settlement products, which shows promising results with an achieved confidence of 95.86% Overall, 71.15% Producer’s and 85.22% User’s accuracy.
