Carrying out surveys on hard to reach populations in far flung parts of the world can be challenging and expensive. But researchers from the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health at the University of Oxford have used freely available satellite images to help identify and sample households in Thailand and Laos, as part of a research project looking at medicine and health behaviours.
