CONSISTENCY IN REMOTE SENSING-BASED URBAN MAPPING FOR GROWTH AND MOBILITY ANALYSIS

Møller-Jensen, L.; Allotey, A. N.

This extended abstract presents initial results from a study that focus on the accuracy of satellite-based maps of Accra’s urban expansion as well as their comparability and ability to provide a basis for assessing urban spatial growth dynamics. Within the study we have analysed five different satellite-derived maps of urban development in Accra and compared the results and underlying methods. It is discussed how these maps can be operationalized and, combined with census data and digital road maps, used for calculating how flood events that disable parts of the transport infrastructure impact the overall mobility of the Accra population.
