  Title Estimation of Light Pollution Using Satellite Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System Techniques Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication GIScience & Remote Sensing Abbreviated Journal GIScience & Remote Sensing  
  Volume 49 Issue 4 Pages 609-621  
  Keywords DMSP-OLS; remote sensing; light pollution; measurements  
  Abstract The primary focus of this research is to estimate light pollution in the urban and suburban regions of Pakistan with the help of satellite remote sensing (SRS) and geographic information system (GIS) techniques. Analog maps and multi-temporal nighttime images of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) onboard Operational Linescan System (OLS) sensor were used in this study. A series of direct and indirect light pollution maps of the study area were generated and analyzed. The results of the study show that in the urban environment, light pollution is mainly due to artificial nightlight sources.
