Nocturnal lighting is directly related to human activity and has been used in modeling population density. Mismatch of spatial scale between county and pixel results in noticeable discrepancy in Digital Number (DN). Consequently, this paper focuses on the limitation and proposes a method to model population density using the DMSP-OLS night-time data. MODIS land cover product was employed to identify...
