Description: This data set can be used to reproduce the analyses made by the authors in their paper “Morphological delineation of cities based on scaling properties of urban patterns: a comparison of three methods”. It contains 12 shapefiles that represent theoretical urban patterns and 4 shapefiles that can be used to delineate the morphological agglomeration of Brussels (Belgium). It also contains a R script to calculate the carrying capacity of a logistic percolation function.
