2006 Light pollution map
« on: December 27, 2017, 08:01:29 PM »
I wanted to share a very good Light Pollution map (used by the Clear Sky Chart, and made by David Lorenz) which covers the whole globe. It uses an expanded colour scale and data from 2006, so it should be more accurate than the old  World Atlas of the Artificial Night Sky Brightness.

 Here is the website
 It even has a Google Maps view!

Additionally, the key (from the Clear Sky Chart) with approximate Bortle Scale classes can be found  here.
