Abstract The area suitable for permanent settlement and agricultural use is a scarce commodity within the Alps. It occurs mostly as a small strip along the Alpine valleys and on the gentler slopes, where most human claims to space are concentrated. Settlements, transport infrastructure, industrial areas and of course agricultural areas are concentrated here. To this day, however, there are no comparable pan-Alpine data on settled space. This is due to the various definitions and regulations within the different countries. For this atlas, therefore, we developed a simple but standardized calculation method for the entire Alpine space. The area available for settlement is made up of the total of settlement areas (CORINE LANDCOVER 2000) plus intensively used agricultural areas (national agrarian statistics).
