In-Depth Information
How do the low levels of economic development influence any attempts to
use the nighttime imagery for population mapping?
How does the percentage of the population involved in mixed or subsistence
agriculture influence this kind of mapping?
How would you incorporate this information into any model building
The idea of using the nighttime imagery as a proxy for economic activity was
also explored. Does the map of GDP/capita at 1 km resolution make sense?
How could a relatively fine resolution (1 km) of GDP/capita map be used?
