Geotechnologies and the Environment

Trends in Spatial Analysis and Modelling

Decision-Support and Planning Strategies

Editors: Behnisch, Martin, Meinel, Gotthard (Eds.)

  • Presents contributions from leading academics in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIS, urban planning, architecture, with a focus in investigations of settlements and infrastructure
  • Multidisciplinary approach to studying recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling which contributes to a better understanding of built-up areas, sustainable resource management, planning and regional development, and spatial information knowledge
  • Cooperation between the disciplines spatial planning, geography and computer science is useful for the complementary linkage of data and methods in the context of supporting spatial planning relevant impulses

About this book

This book is a collection of original research papers that focus on recent developments in Spatial Analysis and Modelling with direct relevance to settlements and infrastructure. Topics include new types of data (such as simulation data), applications of methods to support decision-making, and investigations of human-environment data in order to recognize significance for structures, functions and processes of attributes. Research incorporated ranges from theoretical through methodological to applied work. It is subdivided into four main parts: the first focusing on the research of settlements and infrastructure, the second studies aspects of Geographic Data Mining, the third presents contributions in the field of Spatial Modelling, System Dynamics and Geosimulation, and the fourth part is dedicated to Multi-Scale Representation and Analysis.
The book is valuable to those with a scholarly interest in spatial sciences, urban and spatial planning, as well as anyone interested in spatial analysis and the planning of human settlements and infrastructure. 
Most of the selected papers were originally presented at the “International Land Use Symposium (ILUS 2015): Trends in Spatial Analysis and Modelling of Settlements and Infrastructure” November 11-13 2015, in Dresden, Germany.


 

About the authors

Martin Behnisch received his diploma and doctoral degrees at the Department of Architecture, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. He also received a degree in Wood Processing Technologies (University of Cooperative Education, Dresden, Germany) and a master’s degree in Geographical Information Science (University of Salzburg, Austria) with distinction. He worked in Switzerland as a post-doctoral researcher (2007-2011) at the Institute of Historic Building Research (ETH Zurich). He is currently a senior scientist at the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development. His research interests are in spatial analysis and modeling, urban data mining, spatial monitoring, land use science as well as building stock research. He has published numerous refereed articles in international journals, scientific books and conference proceedings in his discipline.

Dr. Gotthard Meinel is specialist in the field of monitoring of land use development. His research interests are indicator development, automated spatial analysis of large datasets and visualization technologies. Since 1992 he has been acting as a project leader in the field of informatics, GIS and remote sensing at Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER). Since 2009 he has been head of the research area “Monitoring of settlement and open space development” at IOER in Dresden. He received an M.S. in Information Technology in 1981 and a Ph.D. degree in Image Processing at Dresden University of Technology in 1987. Later he was a postdoctoral researcher in biomathematics and technical mathematics. He has published more than 100 research articles in international journals and refereed conference proceedings.
