Remote Sensing, Vol. 15, Pages 2926: Spatial Population Distribution Data Disaggregation Based on SDGSAT-1 Nighttime Light and Land Use Data Using Guilin, China, as an Example (Remote Sensing)
 


A high-resolution population distribution map is crucial for numerous applications such as urban planning, disaster management, public health, and resource allocation, and it plays a pivotal role in evaluating and making decisions to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Although there are many population products derived from remote sensing nighttime light (NTL) and other auxiliary data, they are limited by the coarse spatial resolution of NTL data. As a result, the outcomes’ spatial resolution is restricted, and it cannot meet the requirements of some applications. To address this limitation, this study employs the nighttime light data provided by the SDGSAT-1 satellite, which has a spatial resolution of 10 m, and land use data as auxiliary data to disaggregate the population distribution data from WorldPop data (100 m resolution) to a high resolution of 10 m. The case study conducted in Guilin, China, using the multi-class weighted dasymetric mapping method shows that the total error during the disaggregation is 0.63%, and the accuracy of 146 towns in the study area is represented by an R2 of 0.99. In comparison to the WorldPop data, the result’s information entropy and spatial frequency increases by 345% and 1142%, respectively, which demonstrates the effectiveness of this approach in studying population distributions with high spatial resolution.
