This research presents a new "intelligent" dasymetric mapping technique (IDM), which combines an analyst's domain knowledge with a data-driven methodology to specify the functional relationship of the ancillary classes with the underlying statistical surface being mapped. The data-driven component of IDM employs a flexible empirical sampling approach to acquire information on the data densities of individual ancillary classes, and it uses the ratio of class densities to redistribute population… Expand
Development of a QGIS Plugin to Dasymetric Mapping
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
Using a hybrid methodology of dasyametric mapping and data interpolation techniques to undertake population data (dis)aggregation in South Africa
The ability of GIS to produce accurate analysis results is dependent on the accuracy and the resolution of the data. In many instances the resolution of census enumerator tract data is too coarse andExpand
Increasing the Accuracy of Urban Population Analysis with Dasymetric Mapping
AbstractMany types of urban policy analyses, particularly those relating to exposure to hazards or accessibility to resources, rely on accurate and precise spatial population data, although such dataExpand
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
Comparing the effects of an NLCD-derived dasymetric refinement on estimation accuracies for multiple areal interpolation methods
Comparability among population data enumerated within different time periods may be complicated by changing enumeration boundaries over time. Areal interpolation methods are commonly used to solveExpand
Redistributing Agricultural Data by a Dasymetric Mapping Methodology
This paper examines the adaptation of dasymetric mapping methodologies to agricultural data, including their testing and transposition, in order to recover the underlying statistical surface and yielded maps in which the distribution of the most relevant agro-forestry occupations is closest to reality.

Dasymetric Mapping Using High Resolution Address Point Datasets
Mismatching sets of boundaries present a persistent problem in spatial analysis for many different applications. Dasymetric mapping techniques can be employed to estimate population characteristicsExpand
Determination of the nighttime light imagery for urban city population using DMSP-OLS methods in Istanbul
GIS technologies integrated with satellite images are used in this study and it is thought that it will contribute positively to the studies in this area in terms of regular development of urban areas, increasing the opportunity to make fast and correct decisions, and creating infrastructure for studies such as monitoring and prevention of illegal housing.

Dasymetric Spatiotemporal Interpolation
This research applies the principles of dasymetric mapping to spatiotemporal interpolation by extending the spatial concepts of zone and area to their temporal analogs of interval and duration,Expand


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
Generating Surface Models of Population Using Dasymetric Mapping
Abstract Aggregated demographic datasets are associated with analytical and cartographic problems due to the arbitrary nature of areal unit partitioning. This article describes a methodology forExpand
Dasymetric Mapping and Areal Interpolation: Implementation and Evaluation
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 accuratelyExpand
This paper presents research results on the dasymetric mapping method, the methodology adopted and a Dasymetric Population Density Map of the Northeastern Part of Poland. After studying certainExpand
Modelling the Errors in Areal Interpolation between Zonal Systems by Monte Carlo Simulation
A Monte Carlo simulation method based on modifiable areal units is employed, which allows multiple interpolations of population to be conducted from a single set of source zones to numerous sets of target zones. Expand
A Comparative Analysis of Areal Interpolation Methods
Over the years many approaches to areal interpolation have been developed and utilized. They range from the simple 2-D areal weighing method which uses only the spatial Z variable being processed, toExpand
Remodeling census population with spatial information from LandSat TM imagery
Abstract In geographic information systems (GIS) studies there has been some difficulty integrating socioeconomic and physiogeographic data. One important type of socioeconomic data, census data,Expand
Accuracy of areal interpolation: A comparison of alternative methods
A stochastic model is proposed which represents areal interpolations in diverse geographic situations and is used to examine the relationship between estimation accuracy and the spatial distribution of estimation error from a theoretical viewpoint. Expand
Dasymetric Estimation of Population Density and Areal Interpolation of Census Data
This paper describes techniques to compute and map dasymetric population densities and to areally interpolate census data using dasymetrically derived population weights. These techniques areExpand
The accuracy of areal interpolation techniques: Standardising 19th and 20th century census data to allow long-term comparisons.
The census has been collected in Britain since 1801 and has published detailed attribute data at district-level about the population since 1851. Comparing censuses over the long-term is, however,Expand
