About this book

This work presents cases studies of applications of Geotechnology such as Geography Information Systems, virtual reality and cellular automaton and multi-agent systems in the field of urban planning and design.These are joint research presentations with students and colleagues from Kanazawa University. All these case studies are about application in Japanese or Chinese cities, which are on-field examples reflecting the enormous spread of geo-computation technology. Nevertheless, the concepts have wide applicability to other contexts. The works can be classified into three types of Geotechnological applications at different levels of urban spaces, which are relevant to different kinds of urban planning and development projects. The book is comprised of three parts: Part 1: Geosimulation and land use plan Part 2: Geo Visualization and urban design Part 3: Geography information system and planning support

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book by Zhenjiang Shen provides a practical touch to the series by dealing with the application of geotechnology techniques in urban planning processes. … this book will be especially appreciated by readers who are looking for applications of geotechnology in urban planning.” (Lorena Cadavid, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, 2012)
