Day vs. Night population maps

Day vs. Night population maps | Geography Education |

A great image for showing the pulsating rythmns of a dynamic urban system.  We treat population density as a static metric, but how many people are in a given place would truly be difficult to fully quantify.  What logisitic difficulties would this shift present for cities?

I would be interested to find out how these were created and how the data was recorded.
