From People to Pixels: Mapping Global Population Patterns with the WorldPop Project

Andrea Gaughan and Forrest Stevens, Professors of Geography and Geosciences, received Gates Foundation grant to work on their WorldPop project that generates open source human population maps. Contemporary, fine spatial scale, gridded population data is a crucial component for research across disciplines. Such data is necessary for understanding the ‘now’ of hazard risk and mitigation management, health and disease modelling, economic, environmental, and sustainability related work. The maps have been broadly adopted by international and government agencies for effective policy, planning, and interventions where a strong foundation of evidence is needed.
