Urban settlement

All clusters of buildings with at least 200 inhabitants where the distance
between buildings does not exceed 200 metres are defined as localities or
urban settlements. In defining localities, not only residential but also
business, office and other buildings used as workplaces are taken into
account. Administrative regional divisions do not have an effect on the
formation of localities.
