Notes:
Examines the use of road network data as a proxy for interpreting population density, which is of use in regional-scale qualitative risk assessment for natural hazards. Compares the Caribbean island nation of Saint Lucia to Ontario and Quebec. Analysis of available high-resolution topographic data for Saint Lucia suggests similar trends, with expected population density in Saint Lucia roughly half that of Canada for the same road density.
