India Lights

Night Lights in IndiaComposite of night light imagery from DMSP, 2013

While working at Development Seed, I worked on the India Night Lights project, which used 20 years of nighttime satellite imagery to document nighttime light output for 600,000 villages across India. I created supplemental maps to help tell the story of the main interactive map on the site and also wrote all of the site content.

nighttime daytime comparisonThis interactive Leaflet map slider shows the low resolution nighttime imagery on top of high resolution daytime imagery to give a sense of the scale of the data.
