Quick description

LitPop is a database from ETH Zurich with Global Exposure Data for Disaster Risk Assessment. It contains asset exposure data for global physical risk assessment.

The modeling of economic disaster risk on a global scale requires high-resolution maps of exposed asset values. They have developed a generic and scalable method to downscale national asset value estimates proportional to a combination of nightlight intensity and population data. They make gridded asset exposure data for 224 countries at a resolution of 30 arcsec available for download.
