Scientists from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth of the CAS assessed the potential of using Luojia-1 nighttime light imaging to measure artificial light pollution. Compared with ground-based measurements, nighttime light remote sensing is able to acquire larger-scale and higher quantities of artificial lighting data. The scientists found that Luojia-1 can detect a higher dynamic range and capture the finer spatial details of artificial nighttime light.
