This edited volume compiles a set of papers that present various applications of spatial analysis, both traditional and contemporary, on diverse subjects in a wide range of contexts. The volume is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor Pavlos Kanaroglou, McMaster University, Canada, who greatly contributed to scientific and applied research on spatial analysis. In his honor, the book offers a selection of various spatial analysis approaches to the study of contemporary urban transportation, land use, and air pollution issues. The first part of the book discusses selected general issues in spatial analysis; ontologies, agent-based modelling and accessibility analysis. The second part deals with urban transportation analysis and modelling issues; agent-based activity/travel microsimulation, bottleneck models, public transit use, freight transport and connected automated vehicles impact assessment. Part three focuses on integrated land use and transport analysis, discussing the land value impacts of public transport infrastructure, the role of transport provision on business evolution and commute distance considerations in urban relocation. The fourth part, on travel-related air pollution analysis, presents the development of a geo-information software for mapping Aerosol Optical Thickness in urban environments and the development of a neighborhood level, real time, internet-enabled, air pollution map in the Canadian urban context. This book will appeal to academics, researchers, graduate students, consultants, and practitioners working on topics related to spatial analysis, land use and transport analysis, planning and decision making, and air pollution studies.

Dr. Helen Briassoulis is a Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of the Aegean. She was head of the Department of Geography from 2004-2008 and from 2013-2016. Her teaching subjects include methods of regional analysis, statistics, and environmental impact assessment. She has written several papers and book chapters on research methods, analysis of the human dimensions of land use change, desertification, tourism, planning, and policy analysis. She is the author of the web-chapter "Analysis of Land Use Change: Theoretical and Modeling Approaches" (2000) in the Web Book of Regional Science (Regional Research Institute, University of West Virginia) which is used as a teaching and research resource globally.

Dr. Dimitris Kavroudakis is an Assistant Professor of Geographical Analysis in the Department of Geography at the University of the Aegean. He has worked as a post-doctoral researcher in UCL (CASA), University of Sheffield, and University of the Aegean. He has been involved in high quality geographical research that has led to a number of scientific publications, with focus in location analysis, spatial analysis, network analysis, spatial statistics and economics, open source GIS development, and economic geography.

Dr. Nikolaos Soulakellis is a Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of the Aegean. He was head of the Department of Geography from 2008-2010, and served as the Vice Rector of Academic Affairs and Student Welfare from 2010-2014. He teaches courses in thematic cartography and GIS, and is the Director of the Cartography and Geo-Information Lab in the Department of Geography. He has authored and co-authored over 30 scientific papers, three book chapters and several technical reports on the methodological developments of thematic cartography of environmental data.
