In this paper we explore the land-use patterns of a historical mixed-use quarter of Istanbul by focusing on the reciprocal relationships of housing and commercial uses. We are concerned with the distribution of land-use patterns based on spatial adjacency and land-use patterns within the buildings. We measure reciprocal relationships of housing...

New innovative cadastral projects are embracing satellite imagery and crowd sourcing, integrating disparate data sets, and leveraging all types of devices including smart phones and tables require new lightweight, easy-to-use technology for sustainable, reliable results. Technologies such as the cloud, appear on the surface to be unrealistic in...

CityGML is a standardized data format used to store the semantic information and geometries of buildings and other object classes of 3D city models. The Level of Detail of current state of the art city models (LoD2) is not sufficient for accurate environmental simulations like noise, the solar potential of windows and other types of analyses. An...

Landscape architects use analogue and digital media to understand and design urban areas and the countryside. Because new media in particular enable us to use different approaches to thinking and communicating about spatial design issues, they are contributing to the development of the field. This book chapter explains where digital media belong...

Climate change may result in lowering of ground water levels and consolidation of the soil. The resulting (differential) settlements, associated with soil property transitions, may damage underground pipe infrastructure, such as drinking water distribution sys- tems. The work presented here offers an approach for the prediction of pipe failure...

The thesis consists of 7 chapters. The first chapter will explain the background, motivations and the general overview of the thesis. Chapter 2 is a literature review describing the physics behind the creation of PDs. The conditions necessary for the occurrence of PDs are covered in addition to an analysis of the different types of PD in GIS...

Many new towns are established in China with the intention of providing desirable places to live. Nevertheless, these new towns often lack the flourishing street life, small businesses, and variety of social activities that old towns have to offer. This paper explores the spatial reasons why old towns tend to perform socio-economically better...

Performing environmental spatial analysis requires the collection of base data and special data, subject to the type of analysis in hand, among this data of course LiDAR data can be of much usefulness, in our particular case mobile network data were collected to assess the usefulness of using it for updating some features of the base map that...

Spatial Information is an integral part of flood management practices which include risk management & emergency response processes. Although risk & emergency management activities have their own characteristics, for example, related to the time scales, time pressure, activities & actors involved, it is still possible to identify at least one...

Keeping maps up to date is quite costly because road geometry changes over time and mapping by professional surveyors is an expensive operation. With the presence of GPS sensors on mobile phones and in most cars today it becomes possible to measure the location of roads with many measurements from sensors of lower accuracy. In this thesis we...

The global economical losses caused by flooding have increased over the last 50 years (IPCC, 2014; UNISDR, 2013). Deltares and HKV are developing new methods to quantify flood risk on a global scale. A Flood Risk Assessment Tool (FIAT) is used to performcalculations. The definition of risk is hazard x exposure x vulnerability. FIAT is able to...

Landslide abundance is controlled by multiple factors, including the presence and attitude of beddings, foliation, faults, joints and cleavage systems. Few attempts were made to exploit bedding attitude (BA) data (or data on similar types of rock discontinuities) in statistical or physically based models for regional slope stability analysis. A...

The GIS-based open source software r.slope.stability computes broad-scale spatial overviews of shallow and deep-seated slope stability through physically-based modelling. We focus on the landslide-prone 90 km2 Collazzone area, central Italy, exploiting a comprehensive set of lithological, geotechnical and landslide inventory data available for...

Fugro GeoServices is currently storing their CAD models of the Petrochemical Industry as attributes of 2D lines in a spatial DBMS. This solution works well for web visualization, but not for performing analyses in 3D. The main objective of this graduation project is to create a 3D spatial DBMS with solid CAD geometries as input. The difficulty...

This thesis focusses on the intersection 3D Boolean set operation on voxel data represented as surfaces, with other 3D surface based vector data, in GIS. The Application of this research makes the linkage with geohydrology possible: based on the vectorised GeoTOP (TNO) data the water infiltration and storage capacity of specific locations can be...

Landscape design research is important for cultivating spatial intelligence in landscape architecture. This study explores GIS (geographic information systems) as a tool for landscape design research – investigating landscape designs to understand them as architectonic compositions and to acquire design knowledge that can be used in the creation...

With the help of technologies such as GPS tracks, GIS and open data is now possible to study people travel behaviour in a new way. Nowadays, large datasets can be easily handled thanks to databases and better visualized using GIS. Moreover, the availability of GPS data, open data and VGI makes accessible a lot of new information, which was not...

There is evidence that the potential of GIS is still underutilized in landscape design and research due to a lack of awareness and prejudice. This paper explores some concepts of GIS-based analysis which link to the very heart of landscape design in a natural and intuitive way. Hence the possibility to break down barriers of using GIS in...
