Happy to share this open-access journal article that was an outgrowth of the 2016 SciDataCon/International Data Week:

Using Classified and Unclassified Land Cover Data to Estimate the Footprint of Human Settlement<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__datascience.codata.org_articles_10.5334_dsj-2D2018-2D020_&d=DwIGaQ&c=n6-cguzQvX_tUIrZOS_4Og&r=z_UkiNdaPPnn6f_5YCcwk8pcqAmUKyJq-jppGhCSDi8&m=-cMSZiFq2VVlquOIRR2SPmGBBUWmyNJfK819_XLExOI&s=meu4-0d8wtF928mn5lYILzYLCfdV_PCJNNUBq2jsekA&e=>

This is a peer-reviewed methodology paper about the Esri World Population Estimate Living Atlas web services, which also includes the method for Settlement Points (aka “Nordy Points”), used as the basis for data apportionment in “GeoEnrichment”<https://developers.arcgis.com/rest/geoenrichment/api-reference/geoenrichment-service-overview.htm> in most countries (not U.S., Canada, or Nexiga variables for Germany) as part of those web services.

The methodology also illustrates the use of image processing and Spatial Analyst functionality with a global mosaic dataset of Landsat 8 imagery within ArcGIS to model landscape disturbance where high levels often equate to human settlement.

Cheers …
