Vario-scale data structures make it possible to derive maps at arbitrary scale. When requesting a map, data has to be transferred from server to client. This takes time, which affects the responsiveness of the system, and sometimes costs can be involved for every byte that is send over the network. Redundant data transfers should thus be avoided...

The rapid developments in the field of point cloud acquisition technologies have allowed point clouds to become an important source of information for many applications. One of the newest applications of point clouds concerns the monitoring of the coast. Many countries, among which the Netherlands, use this source of data in order to determine...

Sensor data plays a significant role in our life. Sensors are devices that can sense our environment. This sensor data is part of the Sensor Web and needs a vast data infrastructure design, because many organisations are involved, the abundance of different sensors and because of the big volume of data and near-real time data. The extent to...

House price modeling has been frequently used to investigate the dynamics of housing markets, especially competitive markets; yet less attention has been given to markets that have experienced considerable interventions. The aim of this study is to demonstrate a mismatch between conventional house price models and the case of the Netherlands...

There is a strong belief amongst policy makers regarding the existence of neighbourhood effects, i.e., that above and beyond other influence, the neighbourhood in which they live influences individuals’ life chances. The evidence from scientific reviews leans towards the idea that it is likely that neighbourhoods indeed affect life chances of...

Developments such as smart cities, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) are causing a growing amount of observation data to be produced. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has developed Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards for modelling and publishing this data online. However, their...

Despite strong efforts made by scholars to study the polycentric spatial organization of agglomeration in metropolitan areas, there is still no consensus about the conceptualization (i.e., identification and measurement) of polycentricity and its economic, social, and environmental (dis)advantages. Additionally, little is known in the policy...

Residential buildings are one of the key target sectors for energy and CO2 reduction. Research on the relationship between policy instruments and their effects is crucial for the continuous improvement of these tools. This thesis focuses on The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) as an EU flagship policy for technical improvements...

In the literature examining neighbourhood effects on educational outcomes, the socialisation mechanism is usually investigated by looking at the association between neighbourhood characteristics and educational attainment. The step in between, that adolescents actually internalise educational norms held by residents, is often assumed. We attempt...

Urban areas have spatial discontinuities, such as disconnected neighbourhoods, brownfield areas and leftover places. They can be captured by the metaphor of urban porosity. This paper aims to highlight the potential social consequences of urban porosity by creating a ‘porosity index’. The authors argue that these areas can provide capacity for...

Contemporary cities are becoming more and more diverse in population as a result of immigration. Research shows that while residential neighborhoods are becoming ethnically more diverse within cities, residential segregation from natives has overall remained persistently high. High levels of segregation are often seen as negative, preventing the...
