This study employs a dasymetric mapping approach for modeling and mapping of the spatio-temporal distribution of population at high resolution in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area, Portugal, and concerns its use for territorial planning. The objective is to introduce nighttime and daytime population densities and to demonstrate the usefulness and importance of considering the dynamics of population change in the daily cycle in the process of planning public facilities.
