Knowing where potential consumers can be found now and in the future
The AgeSpot service aims at providing location-based information on the current and future distribution of the population by age group. As information derived from EO data significantly improves existing census data through a modelling approach based on land cover and land use information, AgeSpot links EO derived population density with state-of-the art demographic models. This approach provides spatially explicit demographic data along with information on health and income, and allows long-term forecasting at different levels of granularity. The service provides a technical solution covering all sectors, including stakeholders such as from health and care, independent living, safety and security, social, leisure and education. It meets the information needs of both the private and public sectors in fields such as market research, business location analysis, risk assessment and urban and regional planning.
