  Title Monitoring Regional Urban Dynamics Using DMSP/OLS Nighttime Light Data in Zhejiang Province Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Mathematical Problems in Engineering Abbreviated Journal Mathematical Problems in Engineering  
  Volume 2020 Issue Pages 1-10  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract Accurate monitoring of urban regions and urban sprawls is critical to the detection and assessment of regional development. The nighttime light images of Defense Meteorological Satellite Program’s Operational Linescan System (DMSP/OLS) provide us direct solutions to make spatial descriptions of urban regions. Unfortunately, accurate monitoring of urban regions is apt to be hampered due to the shortages of the DMSP/OLS data. In this study, we utilized a new urban region extraction strategy based on the edge-detection method which is widely applied in automatic digital image processing. The edges of urban areas in Zhejiang province were identified based on the distributions and values of pixels. Compared with other traditional methods, the urban regions extracted in this study present a higher overall accuracy and kappa coefficient (OA = 93.1409%; Kappa = 0.8755). Two periods of the urban dynamic process and urban sprawl pattern in Zhejiang from 1992–2013 were further detected by the proposed method. At city level, the drastic increase in urban areas was found in cities of Hangzhou and Ningbo. This study provides an objective and convenient solution to the accurate identification of urban regions, which is also an important step to better understand the urban dynamics and urban development.

  Title Morfología urbana y proceso de urbanización en Ecuador a través de la imagen satelital nocturna de la Tierra, 1992-2012 Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication Revista EURE-Revista de Estudios Urbano Regionales Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 46 Issue 138 Pages  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract Resumen

El artículo analiza los procesos urbanos de los asentamientos del Ecuador por medio del uso de imágenes satelitales nocturnas, considerando la magnitud y la intensidad de la luminosidad, así como su evolución durante las últimas décadas. En una primera parte, se explica la metodología aplicada para determinar el umbral de luminosidad urbana usando las imágenes satelitales de la serie dmsp-ols. Luego se analiza la intensidad de la luminosidad, así como la magnitud de las áreas con luminosidad urbana, y sus variaciones temporales. Los resultados obtenidos concuerdan con la hipótesis de que el proceso expansivo de baja densidad presente en las ciudades del Ecuador genera una rápida extensión de los usos urbanos, que pueden resultar ineficientes desde el punto de vista económico y poco sustentables ambientalmente. Por lo que a los aspectos metodológicos se refiere, el artículo muestra las potencialidades que pueden derivarse del uso de las fuentes y los procedimientos ensayados, relativamente innovadores en el contexto latinoamericano.

Summary

The article analyzes the urban processes of the main urban areas of Ecuador through the use of nocturnal satellite images, considering the magnitude and intensity of the luminosity, as well as its evolution during the last decades. In the first part, the methodology to determine the threshold of urban luminosity using the satellite images of the dmsp-ols series is explained. Afterwards, the intensity of the luminosity is analyzed, along with the magnitude of the areas with urban luminosity, as well as their temporal variations. The results agree with the hypothesis that the expansive process of low-density development present in the cities of Ecuador, generates a rapid extension of the urban uses that can be inefficient from the economic point of view and unsustainable from the environmental perspective. Regarding the methodological aspects, the article shows the potential that can be derived from the sources and procedures tested, relatively innovative in the Latin American context.

  Title Measuring Districts’ Monthly Economic Activity from Outer Space Type Journal Article
  Year 2018 Publication The World Bank Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract Evening-hour luminosity observed using satellites is a good proxy for economic activity. The strengths of measuring economic activity using nightlight measurements include that the data capture informal activity, are available in near real-time, are cheap to obtain, and can be used to conduct very spatially granular analysis. This paper presents a measure of monthly economic activity at the district level based on cleaned Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite nightlight and rural population. The paper demonstrates that this new method can shed light on recent episodes in South Asia: first, the 2015 earthquake in Nepal; second, demonetization in India; and, third, violent conflict outbreaks in Afghanistan.

  Title ESTIMATION OF TRANSPORT DEMAND USING SATELLITE IMAGE: CASE STUDY OF CHIANG MAI, THAILAND Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication International Journal of GEOMATE Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 18 Issue 69 Pages 111-117  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract Transport demand is one of the essential datasets for urban / transport planning and policy development. However, the full size of travel demand survey requires large amount of cost, therefore the survey is merely conducted in developing countries. Their policy decision might be based on the old and limited datasets. In this study we propose a new approach to estimate transport demand using the night-time light satellite image based on the correlation of these two factors. Taking the case of Chiang Mai Metropolitan area, we found a soft relationship between the night-time light intensity and trip generation/trip attraction. Transport survey data is provided by Chiang Mai University for the year 2016. NOAA provides cloud free monthly composite of night-time light satellite image (VIIRS-DNB) by Suomi-NPP satellite of which resolution is 15 arc-second (about 500m by 500m at equator). It is spatially more precise than zones of travel demand survey and monthly frequency. Applying the relationship between transport demand and night-time light intensity, we propose a method to update the transport demand with higher spatial resolution.
