Geospatial analysis and modelling of urban structure and dynamics

Author: Bin Jiang, Prof; Xiaobai Yao
Publisher: Dordrecht : Springer, 2010
Series: GeoJournal library, v. 99
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
The increasingly urbanized world has created various problems of environment, climate, consumption of resources, and public health, which are closely linked to the side-effects of urbanization such as sprawl, congestion, housing affordability and loss of open space. Fundamental to the urban problems are two separate yet related issues: urban structure and urban dynamics. The chapters collected in this book present  Read more...
