Short summary
An extended time series (2000–2018) of NPP-VIIRS-like nighttime light (NTL) data was proposed through a cross-sensor calibration from DMSP-OLS NTL data (2000–2012) and NPP-VIIRS NTL data (2013–2018). Compared with the annual composited NPP-VIIRS NTL data, our extended NPP-VIIRS-like NTL data have a high accuracy and also show a good spatial pattern and temporal consistency. It could be a useful proxy to monitor the dynamics of urbanization for a longer time period compared to existing NTL data.
