Please join the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) Group and the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Payne Institute Earth Observation Group Director Dr. Christopher Elvidge, presenting a virtual seminar titled Monitoring Economic Activities Using Night Time Light Imagery: Innovation Over the Last 10 Years on Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
The Earth Observation Group of the Colorado School of Mines, led by Christopher Elvidge, uses nighttime satellite imageries to generate high-definition monthly and annual maps of the world. For AFD’s activities, these maps are an original source of data to help with targeting and monitoring at a fine scale the variations in economic activities induced by projects.
During the seminar, Christopher Elvidge will present the work of his team and describe recent innovations. This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on use cases related to targeting and project monitoring.
