Abstract: The most light-polluted country in the world is Singapore, and light pollution was found to be linked to a myriad of health problems that could lead to worsening living standards. Those affected may suffer from a range of tangible and intangible adverse effects, as a result, ranging from a drop in quality of living as well as physical and mental health conditions. Left untreated, this might lead to catastrophic outcomes. Plants and animals are not spared by light pollution as well, causing undesired ecological descent. Therefore, this report aims to study and address the negative impacts caused by light pollution, namely: (1) A feasibility study using publicly available night-time light (NTL) data; (2) Visualizing and evaluating the severity of the light pollution problem in Singapore; (3) The potential factors and reasons leading to the light pollution problem; (4) Study of light pollution levels in specific areas in Singapore; and (5) Modeling and predicting current land use in Singapore using NTL and other data.
