Data from: The inverted U-shaped effect of urban hotspots spatial compactness on urban economic growth

Weipan Xu, Haohui Chen, Enrique Frias-Martinez, Manuel Cebrian & Xun Li
The compact city, as a sustainable concept, is intended to augment the efficiency of urban function. However, previous studies have concentrated more on morphology than on structure. The present study focuses on urban structural elements, i.e., urban hotspots consisting of high-density and high-intensity socioeconomic zones, and explores the economic performance associated with their spatial structure. We use nighttime luminosity (NTL) data and the Loubar method to identify and extract the hotspot and ultimately draw two...
