Analysis and Monitoring of Urban Regions

 

Analysis and monitoring of urban areas is about the description of development paths of and between cities and their relationships with catchments and surroundings. We utilize spatial indicators to learn about the achievements of planning objectives and policy objectives. The results are assessed against planning principles and knowledge about societal transformation trends with a view towards a more sustainable and ressource efficient settlement structure. Results are exchanged and used in governance processes, planning practice and the scientific community.
