If you like webtools that shed light on different land use issues and trends, then the Atlas of Urban Expansion looks to be a good one:
The Atlas of Urban Expansion provides the geographic and quantitative dimensions of urban expansion and its key attributes in cities the world over. The data and images are available for free downloading, for scholars, public officials, planners, those engaged in international development, and concerned citizens. The global empirical evidence presented here is critical for an intelligent discussion of plans and policies to manage urban expansion everywhere.
Check it out at the Lincoln Institute's website.
