Dasymetric-mapping and pycnophylactic-interpolation methods have solid theoretical foundations and empirical supports in population-estimation research. Each of the methods has its own strengths, but also suffers obvious shortcomings. Dasymetric mapping makes good use of ancillary information to infer most likely population distribution, whereas it suffers from the unfounded assumption of uniform distribution of population among all eligible locations. Pycnophylactic interpolation warrants a… Expand
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
Population estimation in small areas : combining dasymetric mapping with pycnophylactic interpolation
Population censuses at fine levels of spatial detai l provide potential demand information for effective health care planning and policy formulati on. Previous studies have used different methods ofExpand
Exploring the impact of dasymetric refinement on spatiotemporal small area estimates
Comparing demographic small area estimates across multiple time periods is hindered by boundary changes in census enumeration units. Areal interpolation can resolve temporal incompatibilities, butExpand
Estimating population surfaces in areas where actual distributions are unknown: dasymetric mapping and pycnophylactic interpolation across different spatial scales
Spatially distributed estimates of population provide commonly used demand surfaces in support of spatial planning. In many countries, spatially detailed population summaries are not available. ForExpand
Deriving Spatially Refined Consistent Small Area Estimates over Time Using Cadastral Data
Areal interpolation is the process of transferring data collected over source zones to target zones. One of the applications of areal interpolation is to construct temporally consistent areal unitsExpand
Practical Spatial Statisics for Areal Interpolation
Differences in spatial units among spatial data often complicate analyses. Spatial unit conversion, called areal interpolation, is often applied to address this problem. Of the many proposed arealExpand
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
Exploiting temporal information in parcel data to refine small area population estimates
Cadastral (parcel) data are used to identify residential land and to dasymetrically refine census tracts, with the goal of achieving more accurate small-area estimates and spatial refinement using residential parcels has the potential to improve the accuracy of areal interpolation for temporal analysis.

ABSTRACT OpenStreetMap (OSM) database has previously been used to support spatial disaggregation of population data by partly masking out non-residential impervious areas in the European CopernicusExpand


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
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
Parameterization and Visualization of the Errors in Areal Interpolation
Correlation and regression analysis revealed that errors from the areal weighting technique were related to the geometric parameters of the target zones, and the dasymetric errors demonstrated more association with the population or attribute characteristics of the zones. Expand
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

Modeling Sensitivity to Accuracy in Classified Imagery: A Study of Areal Interpolation by Dasymetric Mapping*
Areal interpolation is the process by which data collected from one set of zonal units can be estimated for another zonal division of the same space that shares few or no boundaries with the first.Expand
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

In the experiments conducted, regional regressions resulted in better areal interpolation, but also highlighted spatial non-stationarity in the relationship between population and land cover, and the benefits of a 3-class dasymetric model over a binary model were inconclusive. Expand
