Dasymetric maps display statistical data in meaningful spatial zones. Such maps can be preferable to choropleth maps that show data by enumeration zones, because dasymetric zones more accurately represent underlying data distributions. Though dasymetric mapping has existed for well over a century, the methods for producing these maps have not been thoroughly examined. In contrast, research on areal interpolation has been more thorough and has examined methods of transferring data from one set… Expand
CREATING A GRIDDED POPULATION DATA OF INDIA : A COMPARISON AND EVALUATION STUDY OF DASYMETRIC MAPPING METHODS
Demographic datasets such as population are associated with analytical errors due to arbitrary nature of areal unit partitioning. These problems or errors mainly include MAUP (Modifiable Areal UnitExpand
Development of a QGIS Plugin to Dasymetric Mapping
TLDR
A Geographical Information System (GIS) open source application was developed in QGIS software that applies the dasymetric mapping method to the Portuguese Guimarães municipality 2011 Census block-group populations and uses Corine Land Cover Data Set to redistribute population into a 25-m grid.

Dasymetric Mapping for Estimating Population in Small Areas
A dasymetric map depicts a statistical surface, most commonly population density, as a set of simply connected regions, such that variation within each region is minimized and the region boundariesExpand
Comparison of Dasymetric Mapping Techniques for Small-Area Population Estimates
Dasymetric mapping techniques can be employed to estimate population characteristics of small areas that do not correspond to census enumeration areas. Land cover has been the most widely used sourceExpand
Dasymetric Mapping for Disaggregating Coarse Resolution Population Data
This research describes a new dasymetric mapping technique where population data are redistributed from choropleth map zones to dasymetric map zones based on a combination of areal weighting and theExpand
MAPPING TECHNIQUES FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY REGION , CALIFORNIA
Demographic data are commonly represented by using a choropleth map, which aggregates the data to arbitrary areal units, causing inaccuracies associated with spatial analysis and distribution. InExpand
A Hybrid Dasymetric Mapping for Population Density Surface using Remote Sensing Data
Choropleth mapping of population distribution is based on the assumption that people are uniformly distributed throughout each enumeration unit. Dasymetric mapping technique improves choroplethExpand
