Abstract: Nighttime lights captured from satellites has emerged as an important way to measure prosperity. Every researcher who uses the files released by NASA and NOAA faces the challenge of pre-processing it in addressing data quality issues. We present NighttimeLights.jl, a package written in Julia, which implements conventional and novel methods for cleaning the data. The package also serves as a platform for methodological research in remote sensing.
