  Title Building a Series of Consistent Night-Time Light Data (1992–2018) in Southeast Asia by Integrating DMSP-OLS and NPP-VIIRS Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 58 Issue 3 Pages 1843-1856  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract Satellite-derived nighttime light (NTL) data from the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program's Operational Linescan System (DMSP-OLS) and the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (NPP-VIIRS) have been extensively used for monitoring human activities and urbanization processes. Differences of these two datasets in their spatial and radiometric properties make it difficult for a temporally consistent analysis using these two datasets together. In this article, we developed a new approach to integrate these two datasets and generated a temporally consistent NTL dataset from 1992 to 2018. First, we performed the pixel-level spatial resampling of VIIRS data using a kernel density method after preprocessing the raw VIIRS data. Second, we conducted a logarithmic transformation of the aggregated VIIRS data. Third, we proposed a sigmoid function between DMSP and processed VIIRS data to characterize their relationship. Using the proposed method, we generated a series of consistent DMSP NTL data in Southeast Asia from 1992 to 2018 and analyzed the dynamic of resulted NTL at different scales. The evaluations based on profile curves, spatial patterns, scatter correlations, and histograms, of NTLs, indicate that our approach can achieve a good agreement between DMSP and simulated DMSP data in the same year. Our approach offers the potential for generating a time series of global DMSP NTL data from 1992 to present, which can contribute a more continuous and consistent monitoring of human activities and a better understanding of the urbanization process.

  Title Modeling and Prediction of NPP-VIIRS Nighttime Light Imagery Based on Spatiotemporal Statistical Method Type Journal Article
  Year 2020 Publication IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume Issue Pages in press  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract The cloud-free monthly composite of the global nighttime light (NTL) data derived from the Suomi National Polar orbiting Partnership with the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) day/night band (DNB) has gained popularity for detecting anthropogenic and socioeconomic activities. However, the monthly VIIRS DNB composite suffers from a data missing problem induced by continuous cloud cover. The full potential of the VIIRS DNB time series is consequently hindered by low-quality and missing observations. This article proposes a spatiotemporal statistical method (STSM) to predict the VIIRS DNB imagery in severe absence of valid observations' situation. The polynomial with the harmonic model was applied to describe the long-term trends and seasonal cycles in time series. A spatial marginal semivariogram was established to quantify the data dependence in space; we then used spatial interpolation to correct the predicted results from temporal curve fitting. The final predicted values were validated with the actual values based on cross-validation. The results suggest that the STSM is suitable for predicting with a high coefficient of determination (R² = 0.922) and a relatively low root-mean-square error (RMSE = 3.40 nW/cm²/sr). We extended the proposed method to forecast future imagery for a five-month period, the performance of which was more stable, with the highest R²/RMSE (0.158 ± 0.010), compared with two other methods. Therefore, the STSM is effective and stable for modeling and predicting the VIIRS DNB monthly composite and will help address the data missing issue.
