popdens

Global-scale data for population density. Current potential data sources include:

Source Nominal Resolution Latest Data Future Projections?
worldpop 100m 2015 No
Euro. Commission Global Human Settlement 250m 2014 No
Euro. Commission Joint Research Centre 250m 2015 No
NASA Socioecon. Data (SEDAC) 1km 2020 Yes

Current analyses use worldpop only. Potential extension to incorporate NASA data to allow for future projections.

usage

This package currently contains only one function which maps the population density layers in who-data onto the nearest OSM nodes, and dumps the resultant data in that repo (as <city>/osm/popdens_nodes.Rds).
