Disaggregating Census Data for Population Mapping Using Random Forests with Remotely-Sensed and Ancillary Data
TLDR
We present a new semi-automated dasymetric modeling approach that incorporates detailed census and ancillary data in a flexible, “Random Forest” estimation technique. Expand

A new urban landscape in East?Southeast Asia, 2000?2010
East–Southeast Asia is currently one of the fastest urbanizing regions in the world, with countries such as China climbing from 20 to 50 percent urbanized in just a few decades. By 2050, theseExpand

Roads as Drivers of Change: Trajectories across the Tri-National Frontier in MAP, the Southwestern Amazon
TLDR
We study the role of roads and infrastructure improvements across a tri-national frontier region with similar climatic and biophysical conditions but very different trajectories of forest clearing. Expand

INDIVIDUAL VARIATION AND ENVIRONMENTAL STOCHASTICITY: IMPLICATIONS FOR MATRIX MODEL PREDICTIONS
Populations are characterized by variability among individuals, a result of both intrinsic differences among individuals and environmental effects on individual per- formance. Despite the ubiquity ofExpand

Multitemporal settlement and population mapping from Landsat using Google Earth Engine
TLDR
An approach for the automated extraction of urban areas from Landsat imagery using GEE, validated using higher resolution images, and a novel method of validation of the extracted urban extents using changes in the statistical performance of a high resolution population mapping method. Expand
