Towards Flood Resilient Cities

Cities are evolving systems. We have little understanding of their behaviour. We know that they are highly dynamic, in that they face changing environments and inputs, and adapt to these changes. Over a longer historical period, cities have always successfully adapted to changing environmental conditions and thus have been extremely resilient. From 1100 to 1800,

Micro-Location Overview: Beyond the Metre…to the Centimetre

Advances in tracking and location technologies are enabling new application development. These applications can be found in environmental, utility, transport and other industrial applications. Many new approaches are being developed for more personal and local use and these applications include in-store location, hospitals, airports and inside buildings. In this column Steven Feldman takes a look

The European Urban Atlas – Supporting City Habitability

Consumption of natural land for settlements, industry and transport infrastructure proceeds with an alarming pace in Europe and disagrees with the stagnating population. Every three years we lose a surface area equivalent to the size of Luxemburg. Structural Funds of the EU have been held partially responsible for the ill-development. In order to obtain an

Water, Water Everywhere and Not a Drop to Drink

Pour a glass of water out of a kitchen tap throughout the Canterbury region of New Zealand and chances are you’ll be staring at what many consider the finest drinking water in the world. Cool, clear and untouched, it’s originated in the mountains of the Southern Alps, travelled across the Canterbury Plains in the large

Spicycles – Sustainable Policies For Cities On Cycling

When the Spicycles project was launched in 2006, cycling was not the ‘hot’ mode of transport that it has become today. As project partners, we wanted to gather experience related to specific areas of cycling policy. We were keen to explore how key elements such as communication and awareness raising, and the building of local

Designing Geodatabases for Transportation

Transportation networks are highly spatial in nature and dependent upon a high level of planning in their design, operation and maintenance. Accordingly, they are well suited to geographical information systems (GIS) tools. While we tend to think of transport networks in a continuous fashion, primarily to get us from Point A to Point B, these
