About this book

Spatial Data Infrastructure for Urban Regeneration considers the use of spatial data infrastructure in both the study and practice of urban regeneration. Topics range from the development of spatial data infrastructure to its application to urban regeneration studies, so that readers can grasp the whole process of urban regeneration with that infrastructure. Undergraduate and graduate students of city planning, geography, urban economics, and architecture will benefit from reading Spatial Data Infrastructure for Urban Regeneration, even with limited knowledge of or experience in computer science.

Urban planners can obtain practical information about the application of spatial data infrastructure to urban regeneration in various fields, from land-use planning and transportation planning, to disaster management. Topics include state-of-the-art technology for capturing spatial data, visualization of historical spatial data, spatial data of transportation for urban regeneration, management of urban disasters, application of spatial data to the support of human activity and travel behavior, and analysis of human environmental behavior using spatial data infrastructure.
