Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL): The LandScan Global Poulation database was created by the department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory. LandScan is a global population database that shows geographical distribution of population at 1 km resolution over an average 24 hours period. In a humanitarian setting, relief works use the location of potential victime based on this map.
LandScan algorithm uses spatial and imagery analysis technologies and up to date census data with an adminstarative boundary.
ORNL has authorized East View to distribute the LandScanGlobal datasets.
