This paper discusses the importance of determining an accurate depiction of total population and specific sub-population distribution for urban areas in order to develop an improved "denominator," which would enable the calculation of more correct rates in GIS analyses involving public health, crime, and urban environmental planning. Rather than using data aggregated by arbitrary administrative boundaries such as census tracts, we use dasymetric mapping, an areal interpolation method using… Expand

Improving Population Mapping and Exposure Assessment: Three-Dimensional Dasymetric Disaggregation in New York City and São Paulo, Brazil
Abstract Dasymetric mapping is a process of disaggregating spatial data from a coarser to a finer unit of analysis, using additional (or “ancillary”) data to refine the locations of population andExpand
Cadastral-based expert dasymetric system ( CEDS ) using census and parcel data
Population censuses are commonly aggregated and mapped as uniformly distributed areal units. This leads to generalization of geographical patterns where occupied land is indistinguishable fromExpand
Spatial Planning Under Data Paucity: Dasymetric Interpolation of Population, Validated by Google Earth, to Support Health Facility Location Modelling
Small area population estimates are important for facility location-allocation analyses as they provide a spatial distribution of ‘demand’ against which potential ‘supply’ locations are evaluated.Expand
A fine-scale spatial population distribution on the High-resolution Gridded Population Surface and application in Alachua County, Florida
Abstract Geospatial techniques, using Geographic Information Systems and remote sensing data, have become more commonly used with dasymetric modeling of fine-scale demographic data. In this study, weExpand
Creating Temporally Consistent Small Area Census Units Using Advanced Combinations of Areal Interpolation and Spatial Refinement: Method Development and Assessment
Temporal analysis of small-area demographic data commonly relies on areal interpolation methods to create temporally consistent and compatible areal units. In this study, cadastral (parcel) data areExpand

Mapping Urban Risk: Flood Hazards, Race, & Environmental Justice In New York"
TLDR
A newly-developed mapping method, the Cadastral-based Expert Dasymetric System (CEDS), calculates population in hyper-heterogeneous urban areas better than traditional mapping techniques, and ethnic/racial populations are also spatially disaggregated to determine any environmental justice impacts with flood risk.

Multi-layer multi-class dasymetric mapping to estimate population distribution.
TLDR
A multi-layer multi-class dasymetric (MLMCD) framework was proposed in this study to better redistribute the regionally aggregated population statistics into smaller areal units and reveal more realistic spatial population distribution pattern. Expand
