Calculation of a nighttime-population map based on free data
When the first authoritative data was released, free access was given to registries like the building registry (BBR). However, statistical data like the nighttime-population is still not free. This analysis shows how we can use dasymetric mapping to dis-aggregate municipality population data into BBR housing units, producing an estimated nighttime-population map. The results produced show that the proposed model has a general overrepresentation of the population, but despite that, this free dataset calculated here, should be usable in many cases where an estimate is adequate.
