    Example of OpenStreetMap driven improvements in population density mapping

    OpenStreetMap integration

    The new WorldPop random forest population mapping approaches (see methods page) enable the integration of multiple open data layers. The ever increasing detail and accuracy of OpenStreetMap layers for countries of the World that were previously poorly mapped is translating into improvements in population density mapping precision and accuracy - see the Vietnam example on the right.
