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...

Exploring the Visual Landscape is about the combination of landscape research and planning, visual perception and Geographic Information Science. It showcases possible ways of getting a grip on themes like: landscape openness, cluttering of the rural landscape, high-rise buildings in relation to cityscape, historic landscapes and motorway...

The book Computational modelling of terrains presents an overview of algorithms and methodologies to reconstruct, manipulate, and extract information from terrains.<br/><br/>It covers different representations of terrains (eg TINs, rasters, point clouds, contour lines) and presents techniques to handle large datasets.

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...

This paper explores tangible and intangible characteristics of places. It concentrates on gathering characteristics, emotions, memories and stories related to self-selected evocative places in a city. Evocative places are defined as places that evoke images, memories or emotions. There are two goals identified for this article. The first goal is...

In this chapter, we start from the typical concepts from Geographic Information System (GIS): data representation, acquisition, querying and analysis. We follow with the transition from 2 to 3D GIS and describe open standards such as CityGML and CityJSON and recent advances on 3D geospatial simulations, computing and real-time GIS and...

Utilizing common language within industries has long been a successful pattern within geographic information systems (GIS) to assist in identification of suitable industry specific workflows. As technology itself advances, the need for highly accessible common industry language is even more pronounced. The Land Administration Domain Model (LADM)...

During emergency response a lot of dynamic information is created and needs to be studied and analysed in the decision-making process. However, this analysis of data is difficult and often not possible. A major reason for this is that a lot of information coming from the field operations is not archived in a structured way. This paper presents a...

The potential for volunteer groups to contribute geographic data to National Mapping Agencies has been widely recognised. Several investigations have been done to determine the geometric accuracy of this data for the purposes of national mapping. Beyond accuracy, from a production perspective National Mapping Agencies will also be interested in...

GIS integrated 3D modelling is crucial for the city planning and design processes because urban modelling is a tool used in virtual environments, and provides convenience to work. Although, the creation and display of 3D city models for large regions is difficult it is vital for planning and designing safer cities, as well as public places....

3D cadastre is necessary to display and manage complex spatial relationships. To support a full 3D cadastral implementation, object boundary definitions, object topologies and their legal representations will have to be further defined. A hybrid approach combining 2D and 3D using GIS represents a feasible, economical and extensible approach....

This paper introduces the concept of a space-scale partition, which we term the space-scale cube – analogous with the space-time cube (first introduced by Hägerstrand, 1970). We take the view of '"map generalization is extrusion of 2D data into the third dimension" (as introduced by Vermeij et al., 2003). An axiomatic approach formalizes the...

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...

We have been witnessing an increased interest in a more holistic approach to urban design practice and education. In this paper we present a spatial data model for urban design that proposes the combination of urban environment feature classes with design process feature classes. This data model is implemented in a spatial database that becomes...
