We investigate the applicability of medium resolution Landsat satellite imagery for mapping temporal changes in urban land cover in European cities for direct use in urban flood models. The overarching aim is to provide accurate and costand resource-efficient quantification of temporal changes in risk towards the impacts of pluvial flooding. The results show that satellite imagery may have considerable potential in this respect, and that Landsat imagery can be used to provide accurate information on recent urban development patterns.
