Assessment of the economical dimension of sustainable development of the ukraine’s regions based on the brightness of night lights
Keywords:sustainable development, spatial data analysis, economical development, night lights, mathematical modeling
When assessing the level of development of territories, the problem of finding objective qualitative data that will characterize it arises. One of the possible sources of such data is the remote sensing of the Earth (RSE). The article is devoted to the analysis of the possibility of using the product of RSE – the map of night lights, for modeling the economical dimension of the sustainable development of the regions of Ukraine. Using the regression and correlation analysis and neural networks, appropriate models for assessing the level of economic development of the Kherson region, Donetsk region, and the AR of Crimea were obtained. The study was carried out by the team of the World Data Center for Geoinformatics and Sustainable Development of the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. It was part of research on the analysis of the behavior of complex socio-economic systems and processes of sustainable development in the context of the quality and safety of people’s lives.
