    Formalized interpretation of compound land use objects – Mapping historical summer farms from a single satellite image2012Inngår i: Journal of Land Use Science, ISSN 1747-423X, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 89-107Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Notions of land cover relating to physical landscape characters are readily captured by satellite imagery. Land use on the other hand relates more to the societal aspects of a landscape. We argue that much of the spatial configuration of landscape characters is related to land use and that satellite data can be used to represent and investigate interpretations of land use. We propose and demonstrate the joint use of a novel SRPC procedure for satellite imagery together with an explicit representation of category semantics. We use these two mechanisms to identify a collection of conceptual spaces related to land use on Swedish historic summer farms. We also outline a framework for analysis of the relations between two separate ways of knowing: the machine-based knowledge and the human, mental knowledge. An evaluation demonstrates that satellite images can be used to identify land use processes as a mixture of land cover objects occurring in particular spatial contextual relationships closely tied to the land use category semantics. This opens up an unexplored possibility for research on vague spatial ontologies and questions on how to formally articulate different interpretations of space, land use, and other branches of spatial social science.

    A Multiscalar Approach for Identifying Clusters and Segregation Patterns That Avoids the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem2017Inngår i: Annals of the Association of American Geographers, ISSN 0004-5608, E-ISSN 1467-8306, Vol. 107, nr 3, s. 555-574Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    One problem encountered in analyses based on data aggregated into areal units is that the results can depend on the delineation of the areal units. Therefore, a particular aggregation at a specific scale can yield an arbitrary result that is valid only for that specific delineation. This problem is called the modifiable areal unit problem (MAUP), and it has previously been shown to create issues in analyses of clusters and segregation patterns. Many analyses of segregation and clustering use the ratio or difference between a value for an areal unit and the corresponding value for a larger area of reference. We argue that the results of such an analysis can also be rendered arbitrary if one does not examine the effects of varying the geographical extent of the area of reference to test whether the analysis results are valid for more than a specific areal delineation. We call this the part of the MAUP that is related to the area of reference. In this article, we present and demonstrate a multiscalar approach for studying segregation and clustering that avoids the MAUP, including the part of the problem related to the area of reference. The proposed methods rely on multiscalar aggregation of the k nearest neighbors of a location in a statistical comparison with a larger area of reference consisting of the K nearest neighbors. The methods are exemplified by identifying clusters and segregation patterns of the Hispanic population in the contiguous United States.

    Residential Segregation of European and Non-European Migrants in Sweden: 1990–20122018Inngår i: European Journal of Population, ISSN 0168-6577, E-ISSN 1572-9885, Vol. 34, nr 2, s. 169-193Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, we analyse how a migrant population that is both expanding and changing in composition has affected the composition of Swedish neighbourhoods at different scales. The analysis is based on Swedish geocoded individual-level register data for the years 1990, 1997, 2005, and 2012. This allows us to compute and analyse the demographic composition of neighbourhoods that range in size from encompassing the nearest 100 individuals to the nearest 409,600 individuals. First, the results confirm earlier findings that migrants, especially those from non-European countries, face high levels of segregation in Sweden. Second, large increases in the non-European populations in combination with high levels of segregation have increased the proportion of non-European migrants living in neighbourhoods that already have high proportions of non-European migrants. Third, in contrast to what has been the established image of segregation trends in Sweden, and in an apparent contrast to the finding that non-European migrants increasingly live in migrant-dense neighbourhoods, our results show that segregation, when defined as an uneven distribution of different populations across residential contexts, is not increasing. On the contrary, for both European migrants from 1990 and non-European migrants from 1997, there is a downward trend in unevenness as measured by the dissimilarity index at all scale levels. However, if segregation is measured as differences in the neighbourhood concentration of migrants, segregation has increased.

    Segregation of Residents with Tertiary Education in Sweden from 1990 to 20122019Inngår i: Professional Geographer, ISSN 0033-0124, E-ISSN 1467-9272, Vol. 71, nr 2, s. 301-314Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There has been a dramatic increase in the number of people with tertiary education in Sweden, partly due to the governmental policy of making higher education more geographically available. In this study, we analyze how educational expansion and the governmental policy of offering tertiary education outside of old academic centers affected segregation patterns in 2012 compared to 1990. We analyze the spatial distribution of those with tertiary education using neighborhoods based on k-nearest neighbors and measure the segregation of residents with tertiary education using a multiscalar method. Additionally, we compare local labor market regions that include old, new, or no institutions of higher education. The results show an overall higher share of tertiary-educated people age twenty-five to sixty-four in all parts of Sweden in 2012 and a decrease in the levels of population-weighted mean segregation at all geographical scales. Segregation was mostly introduced on the city or city district level (for larger cities) and regional level rather than the neighborhood level. Segregation also decreased in all three types of labor market regions. The segregation patterns remained similar between 2012 and 1990, however, and a higher share of the population lived in segregated areas in 2012 compared to that in 1990.

    MAUPing Workplace Clusters2014Inngår i: Growth and Change, ISSN 0017-4815, E-ISSN 1468-2257, Vol. 45, nr 2, s. 211-221Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The modifiable areal unit problem (MAUP) is seldom accounted for in economic geography cluster studies. This issue is particularly problematic as clusters play such a central role in regional development policy. In this study, we tested for the appearance of the MAUP when examining workplace category clusters over three different administrative scales in Stockholm County, Sweden. The measures used were the standardised ratio, global autocorrelation, and local autocorrelation. We discovered not only that the appearance of clusters depended on the administrative unit scale but also that the location of the clusters, based on the local indicator of spatial association, fluctuated wildly over the various administrative scales. Thus, our conclusion was that the robustness and validity of workplace category clusters should always be challenged if the MAUP has not been taken into account, or at least tested for.

    Inferring Land Use from Remote Sensing Imagery: A context-based approach2014Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This doctoral thesis investigates the potential of classification methods based on spatial context to infer specific forms of land use from remote sensing data. The problem is that some types of land use are characterized by a complex configuration of land covers that traditional per-pixel based methods have problems classifying due to spectral heterogeneity. The problem of spectral heterogeneity is also present in classification of high resolution imagery. Two novel methods based on contextual information are evaluated, Spatial Relational Post-Classification (SRPC) and Window Independent Context Segmentation (WICS). The thesis includes six case studies in rural and urban areas focusing on the classification of: agricultural systems, urban characteristics, and dead wood areas. In the rural case studies specific types of agricultural systems associated with different household strategies are mapped by inferring the physical expression of land use using the SRPC method. The urban remote sensing studies demonstrate how the WICS method is able to extract information corresponding to different phases of development. Additionally, different urban classes are shown to correspond to different socioeconomic profiles, demonstrating how urban remote sensing can be used to make a connection between the physical environment and the social lives of residents. Finally, in one study the WICS method is used to successfully classify dead trees from high resolution imagery. Taken together these studies demonstrate how approaches based on spatial context can be used to extract information on land use in rural and urban environments where land use manifests itself in the form of complex spectral class and land cover patterns. The thesis, thus, contributes to the research field by showing that contextual methods can capture multifaceted patterns that can be linked to land use. This, in turn, enables an increased use of remote sensing data, particularly in the social sciences.

    Remote sensing for urban planning and management: The use of window-independent context segmentation to extract urban features in Stockholm2015Inngår i: Computers, Environment and Urban Systems, ISSN 0198-9715, E-ISSN 1873-7587, Vol. 52, s. 1-9Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The strategic scale of urban planning and management is concerned with the planning and monitoring of general land use in a city, such as different types of residential, industrial and commercial areas. Because of the poor results of standard per-pixel-based classification methods in urban areas, visual interpretation of remote sensing data is often preferred. This paper empirically tests the ability of a novel method, called window-independent context segmentation, to extract information that is useful at the strategic scale of urban planning and management. The method is implemented in a theoretical framework that is a response to Bibby and Shepherd's call for a new ontology in the application of geographic information systems and remote sensing to land use issues. In a case study using a SPOT5 satellite image of central Stockholm, the window-independent context segmentation method extracts urban features that correspond to the strategic scale of urban-planning and management and that differ in function and underlying planning theory and practice.

    Classification of different urban categories corresponding to the strategic spatial level of urban planning and management using a SPOT4 scene2015Inngår i: Journal of Spatial Science, ISSN 1836-5655, Vol. 60, nr 1, s. 99-117Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Information about the spatial and structural properties as well as different indicators of social and economic functions cannot be easily extracted from remote-sensing data in an urban milieu. This paper focuses on the extraction of information that is relevant to the strategic spatial level of urban planning management, i.e., more general land-use descriptions, using the window-independent context segmentation method to extract urban area categories from a SPOT4 satellite scene. In this study, we were able to extract three different urban categories, industrial/commercial, and two residential categories that belong to different suburbanisation phases.

    Changes in the residential segregation of immigrants in Sweden from 1990 to 2012: Using a multi-scalar segregation measure that accounts for the modifiable areal unit problem2017Inngår i: Applied Geography, ISSN 0143-6228, E-ISSN 1873-7730, Vol. 87, s. 73-84Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper, the levels of residential segregation of immigrants in Sweden during the years 1990, 1997, 2005, and 2012 are calculated. This paper applies a novel method for calculating segregation that is multi-scalar and addresses the modifiableareal unit problem (MAUP). The level of segregation is evaluated for each populated location by identifying the population that includes the kappa-nearest neighbours. The share of immigrants in this assessment population is then compared to the share in the reference population that comprises the kappa-nearest neighbours. One of the strengths of this method is the possibility to modify the reference population, thus making it possible to measure the difference in the results due to the size of the reference population. This study demonstrates that the results can considerably differ depending on which reference population is used. Furthermore, this study indicates that using different reference areas can produce completely different trends over time, such as decreasing or increasing segregation. The results demonstrate a general increase in segregation between 1990 and 1997, followed by a more complex pattern from 1997 to 2012. The segregation values are presented for all populated locations in Sweden, and population-weighted means are calculated for the whole of Sweden, in addition to the Stockholm, Malmo, and Gothenburg metropolitan areas.

    Automatic mapping of standing dead trees after an insect outbreak using the Window Independent Context Segmentation method2014Inngår i: Journal of forestry, ISSN 0022-1201, E-ISSN 1938-3746, Vol. 112, nr 6, s. 564-571Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Since the 1980s, there has been an increase in the spruce bark beetle population in the Bavarian Forest National Park in southeastern Germany. There is a need for accurate and time-effective methods for monitoring the outbreak, because manual interpretation of image data is time-consuming and expensive. In this article, the window independent context segmentation method is used to map deadwood areas. The aim is to evaluate the method’s ability to monitor deadwood areas on a yearly basis. Two-color infrared scenes with a spatial resolution of 40 × 40 cm from 2001 and 2008 were used for the study. The method was found to be effective with an overall accuracy of 88% for the 2001 scene and 90% for the 2008 scene.

    Migrant labor market integration: the association between initial settlement and subsequent employment and income among migrants2019Inngår i: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 101, nr 2, s. 118-137Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The neighborhood effects literature indicates that a person’s place of residence may affect their socio-economic situation. This study examines the association between initial settlement and immigrants’ employment and income. Previous studies mostly used administratively defined geographical units of study, which may have led to an underestimation of neighborhood effects. The current study uses individualized neighborhoods, where neighborhoods are constructed based on each individual’s closest neighbors using geocoded register data, on different scales. In this way, more of the individual’s actual neighborhood is captured. The longitudinal study follows three cohorts of migrants and examines the relationship between the initial neighborhoods that migrants settle in and their employment and income, in the short and medium-long term. The results show clear associations between neighborhoods of initial settlement and labor market integration. Starting off in neighborhoods with high levels of deprivation is associated with lower levels of employment, while settling in affluent neighborhoods is associated with higher incomes. Findings are stable for different migrant cohorts and in the short and long term. Neighborhood effects are substantial especially for those settling in the most deprived or the most affluent neighborhoods.

    Boende och integration: Samband mellan invandrades initiala bosättning och deras sysselsättning och inkomst2017Rapport (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna studie syftar till att studera sambandet mellan boendesegregation och invandrades sysselsättning och arbetsinkomst. Med boendesegregation avses att individer eller grupper av individer med olika egenskaper lever på geografiskt åtskilda platser. Detta ses vanligtvis som en utmaning då den kan påverka individers framtida utfall, såsom utbildningsnivå och sysselsättningsgrad. När individer lever åtskilda kan de påverkas olika beroende på vilket slags grannskap de lever i, vilket brukar kallas grannskapseffekter. Dessa grannskapseffekter kan vara både positiva och negativa på individers socioekonomiska situation. Till exempel kan lokala normer kring attityder till högre utbildning påverka individens val att söka sig till högre utbildning. Det finns studier som visar att invandrades inkomster kan påverkas positivt om de bosatt sig i invandrartäta områden då de kunnat dra nytta av nätverk baserade på den egna etniska gruppen. Det finns å andra sidan flera studier som pekar på negativa effekter på arbetsmarknadsintegration av att bo i socioekonomiskt utsatta områden. Tidigare har tre politiska strategier för att motverka negativa effekter av boendesegregation använts. En strategi har varit blandat boende, vilket bygger på idén att en blandad bebyggelse i upplåtelseformer, bostadstyp och bostadsstorlek ska leda till en blandad befolkningssammansättning när det gäller ålder, familjesituation och ekonomi. Flyktingallokering, dvs. att flyktingmottagandet sprids över alla Sveriges kommuner, har varit en annan strategi för att minska boendesegregationen. Slutligen lanserades storstadssatsningen som en strategi där tyngdpunkten låg på att skapa förutsättningar för ekonomisk utveckling i socioekonomiskt utsatta områden i ett antal storstadskommuner. Forskningen har visat att ingen av dessa satsningar i nämnvärd utsträckning lyckats motverka boendesegregationen. Mot bakgrund av att den etniska segregationen ökat i Sverige har studien ställt följande forskningsfråga: Hur ser sambandet ut mellan de grannskap som invandrade initialt bosätter sig i och invandrades arbetsmarknadsintegration på kort och medellång sikt? Tidigare studier som analyserat segregationsförändringar och sambandet mellan segregation och individuella socioekonomiska utfall har endast analyserat detta på fördefinierade administrativa områden. Detta kan ha lett till en underskattning av grannskapssamband. I denna studie använder vi individbaserade grannskap som skapas baserat på individens närmsta grannar med hjälp av geografiskt kodad registerdata, på olika skalor. På så sätt kan vi bättre fånga in individers faktiska grannskap. I studien följer vi individer som invandrat under tre olika år (tre kohorter invandrare) genom att studera var de bosätter sig efter folkbokföringen och om de är sysselsatta och hur höga deras inkomster är på kort och på medellång sikt. Till studien har migrantkohorterna som folkbokfördes under år 1995, 2001 och 2007 valts. Anledningen till att vi studerar tre olika migrantkohorter är för att analysera om ett eventuellt samband mellan grannskap och arbetsmarknadsintegration håller över tid och för olika typer av migranter. Arbetsmarknadsintegrationen mäts genom sysselsättningsstatus och förvärvsinkomst fyra respektive tio år efter första folkbokföringen i Sverige. Sambandet mellan initialt grannskap och arbetsmarknadsintegration undersöks genom en modell som tar hänsyn till individens socioekonomiska och demografiska egenskaper, flyttningar, kommunala arbetsmarknader och typ av initialt grannskap. Vi finner ett negativt samband mellan att initialt bosätta sig i grannskap med ett högt värde av utsatthet och sannolikheten att vara sysselsatt, både på kort och på medellång sikt. Dessutom finns ett samband mellan initialt grannskap och förvärvsinkomst bland sysselsatta, både på kort och på medellång sikt för de flesta migrationskohorter. Ju högre grad av välstånd i initiala grannskapen, desto högre grad av sysselsättning och högre förvärvsinkomst bland sysselsatta, på kort och medellång sikt. På liknande sätt gäller att ju högre grad av utsatthet som råder i det initiala grannskapet desto lägre sannolikhet att vara sysselsatt på kort och medellång sikt och desto lägre förvärvsinkomst på kort sikt. Vi visar också att sambandet mellan arbetsmarknadsintegration och individegenskaper, särskilt kön, grund för bosättning och utbildning, är mycket starkare än sambandet mellan initialt grannskap och arbetsmarknadsintegration. Våra resultat visar på negativt samband mellan att vara initialt bosatt i utsatta områden och individers socioekonomiska utfall och även att det finns positivt samband mellan att vara bosatt i grannskap med höga värden av välstånd och individers arbetsmarknadsanknytning. En svaghet med denna typ av studier är att det inte är möjligt att avgöra om de uppmätta sambanden är kausala, dvs. sambanden kan bero på andra icke-uppmätta variabler. Vår modell kontrollerar för flyttningsmönster och individuella bakgrundsfaktorer men det kan finnas andra faktorer som inte fångas upp i vår studie. Exempelvis har vi inte uppgift om invandrades individuella motivation, ekonomiskt kapital, kontaktnät etc. En kausal tolkning om att initialt grannskap faktiskt påverkar invandrades arbetsmarknadsintegration är därför behäftad med osäkerhet. Trots studiens begränsningar manar resultaten till eftertanke i relation till såväl stadsplanering som sociala satsningar riktade mot nyanlända. För det första pekar resultatet på möjliga fördelar med att investera i nybyggnation i områden med etablerat välstånd för att skapa bättre förutsättningar för nyanlända invandrare. Eftersom nyproduktion av lägenheter generellt är förknippande med höga hyror eller höga bostadspriser kan de vara svårtillgängliga för nyanlända. Därför skulle det krävas lösningar som möjliggör att dessa blir tillgängliga för nyanlända i områden präglade av välstånd. För det andra talar resultaten för fördelar med strategier där nyanlända placeras i specifika områden. En möjlighet kan vara att inte bara allokera nyanlända, som inte väljer eget boende, över kommuner utan även fundera på vilken typ av grannskap de nyanlända placeras i. För det tredje pekar resultaten på potentialen med områdesbaserade satsningar som syftar till att motverka de negativa sambanden av att bosätta sig i socioekonomiskt svaga områden och därmed påverka individers arbetsmarknadsintegrering. Tidigare forskning har förordat områdesbaserade satsningar som beaktar både nackdelarna för de som invandrar av att bosätta sig i socioekonomiskt svaga grannskap och fördelarna av att bosätta sig nära den egna etniska gruppen. Avslutningsvis vill vi peka på att invandrades arbetsmarknadsintegration påverkas av många olika faktorer. Grannskap är en av dessa faktorer, men som våra resultat och tidigare forskning pekat på är andra faktorer framförallt på individnivå viktigare, såsom kön, grund för bosättning och utbildningsnivå. Förutom faktorer relaterade till individers socioekonomiska bakgrund har studien även visat att flyttningar och förhållanden på kommunala arbetsmarknader är faktorer som alla förtjänar att beaktas. Strategier som syftar till att förbättra invandrades etablering på arbetsmarknaden behöver ta hänsyn till alla dessa faktorer.

    Qualitative satellite image analysis: Mapping spatial distribution of farming types in Ethiopia2012Inngår i: Applied Geography, ISSN 0143-6228, E-ISSN 1873-7730, Vol. 32, nr 2, s. 465-476Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Satellite images have enormous potential for qualitative land use analysis. This paper presents empirical results that demonstrate how normally invisible dimensions produced by land use can be identified by enriching satellite data with qualitative information from field studies.

    Land use can be defined as the intentional use of a specific piece of land resulting in patterns of ecological responses that are visible in the land cover and landscape. Responses to land use often result in a heterogeneous combination of reflectance in satellite images. Statistical methods used in the classification of satellite imagery are limited in their capacity to handle categories consisting of heterogeneous combinations of spectral values. To overcome this limitation, a contextual post-classification method has been used to map land cover configurations as related to different agricultural practices in the district of Sodo, Ethiopia.

    The results show that it is possible to map socio-spatial distribution of different agricultural and socioeconomic practices on a regional level by combining field observations and spatial contextual information. The empirical findings show local agricultural activity variations in cash crop production and subsistence agriculture in the Sodo district of Ethiopia.
