Evaluation of High Resolution Satellite Images for Urban Population Estimation

  title={Evaluation of High Resolution Satellite Images for Urban Population Estimation},
  author={Iris M. Souza and Madalena N. Pereira and Maria de Lourdes N. O. Kurkdjian},
The objective of this research was to evaluate the applicability of high spatial resolution remote sensing data for the estimation of urban population in the inter census periods in the Brazilian city of São José dos Campos. Digital IKONOS-2 data were used. Data analysis was conducted using SPRING (GIS). The procedure attempted to identify intra-urban network areas with similar residential occupation features, known as homogeneous zones. Within some chosen zones, official census sectors were… CONTINUE READING
