More than half of the world population lives in urban areas with projections showing a population increase up to 66% by 2050 (UN 2015). To accommodate the growing number of city dwellers, urban areas are expanding twice as fast as their population (e.g., Seto et al. 2012), raising concerns about sustainability and livability of cities. Given the increasing importance of urban areas in both driving and being impacted by global environmental changes, there is a rapidly growing interest in understanding their dynamics (Seto and Shepherd 2009).
