The DMSP Night Lights Data Set observes anthropogenic light from 1993 to the present. The applications of this data set include:

  • Economics
  • Sociology
  • Ecology
  • Material Sciences
  • Population Studies
  • Urbanization
  • Geo-politics
  • Carbon Budget
  • Human Health
  • Gas Flares
  • Fires
  • Industrial Fishing

This workshop will consist of a presentation of some of the existing applications of this product with time for discussion about what else could be possible. We are looking for ESIP partners who wish to enhance their offerings with a value-added version of this data set.

Presenter: Daniel Ziskin, NOAA/NGDC
