Abstract

This dataset is related to the question of whether communities inside of certified "International Dark Sky Places" have different levels of lighting change in comparison to communities of similar size that are located further away. It is a supplement to Coesfeld et al. (2019), in which this question was examined for the time period 2012-2018. This dataset contains the boundaries of the analysis areas (i.e. community boundaries) in the directory "Coordinates and Graphs". These boundaries are stored as polygons in plain text format. Additional data related to the publication (e.g. Excel tables containing summary data of measured lighting trends for each community) are also included. Details of the data are available in the data description file.
