LandScan Global Population Database – Trial ended December 3, 2011

East View’s LandScan Global Population Database is a geographically based population distribution model, first developed at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).

LandScan refines the best available census data using geographic information systems and remote sensing technologies and shows geographical distribution of population at one-kilometer resolution over an average 24 hour period.
