Everything around us is rapidly changing. Whole new blocks of buildings are built, huge infrastructural projects are constructed and so on. Hence, there is a need of a reliable and up-to-date inventory of the area and the objects of interest for mapping and monitoring assets and their changes. An answer of this upcoming need is an automated...

Users' perception of geographic space depends heavily on geographic information systems (GIS). GIS are the most common way for users to estimate travel time, provide routing information and recommend appropriate forms of transportation. This article analyses how predictions made by Google Maps, one of the most popular GIS, influence users'...

Air pollution remains a major environmental and health concern in urban environments, especially in street canyons that show increased pollution levels due to a lack of natural ventilation. Previous studies have investigated the relationship between street canyon morphology and in-canyon pollution levels. However, these studies are typically...

Global plastic production increased from 200 million metric tons in 2002, to 359 million metric tons in 2019. It is estimated that plastics in the marine environment weigh more than 150 million metric tons and by 2050 could even outweigh the mass of fish in the ocean. Over half of the world population (55%) nowadays lives in urban areas and...

Hydrogen, as a fuel, will soon play a key role in helping economies transition to more sustainable practices. Having always garnered attention due to its non-polluting nature, the costs associated with its production have stood in the way of it being more widely used in society. Since the cost of clean energy to produce hydrogen is one of the...

In the Netherlands, almost half of the energy supplied to households is used for space heating. Since natural gas supplies heating fuel to almost 95% of residential buildings Dutch municipalities have to investigate the possibilities of diversifying their heating infrastructure in order to comply with government environmental goals. Possible...

This research strives to contribute to the solution of the Amsterdam waste problem by improving the location determination of the various container types within the Centrum area. One of the modalities is an autonomous surface vehicle (ASV), and in this case, a Roboat. Since it is not possible to assign all demand to one modality, also trucks and...

Politicians, planners, and mapmakers have long used mapping to depict selected spaces, to document natural and humanmade changes within them, and to identify spaces where planning intervention is needed or can be helpful. Recent innovations involving big data, GIS-based research and digital datasets offer opportunities for maps and mapping that...
