This book aims to promote the synergistic usage of advanced computational methodologies in close relationship to geospatial information across cities of different scales. A rich collection of chapters subsumes current research frontiers originating from disciplines such as geography, urban planning, computer science, statistics, geographic information science and remote sensing. The topics covered in the book are of interest to researchers, postgraduates, practitioners and professionals. The editors hope that the scientific outcome of this book will stimulate future urban-related international and interdisciplinary research, bringing us closer to the vision of a "new science of cities."

"In line with the theme of the book, these novel computation-intensive approaches . will doubtlessly inspire future researchers and bring urban environment research to the next level. . This volume will be of interest to broad groups of readers. . this collection of chapters should be a mandatory reading for those working on urban studies who would like to explore an increasing urbanization through fast updating technologies." (Xiaohui Liu, The AAG Review of Books, Vol. 4 (3), July, 2016)

Marco Helbich received his master and doctoral degrees at the Department of Geography and Regional Research, University of Vienna, Austria. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Human Geography and Spatial Planning, Utrecht University, The Netherlands and previously a recipient of an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship. His research interests are in cities, computational modeling, spatial analysis, real estate, crime mapping and health geography. He has published 30+ refereed articles in top international journals in his discipline, such as Urban Geography, International Journal of Geographical Information Science, Annals of the Association of American Geographers, International Journal of Health Geographics, Journal of Transport Geography and others.

Jamal Jokar Arsanjani received his doctoral degree in Geographic Information Science (GISc) from the Department of Geography and Regional Research, University of Vienna, Austria. He is currently an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the Institute of Geography, Heidelberg University, Germany. His interdisciplinary research interests are in volunteered geographic information and crowdsourcing, geocomputation and spatial planning, remote sensing of the environment, and disaster management. He has published articles in leading international journals of his discipline, including International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, International Journal of Digital Earth, Transactions in GIS, Cities and single-authored a book on Dynamic Land Use/Cover Change Simulation: Geosimulation and Agent-based Modelling with Springer publication.

Michael Leitner received a master degree at the Department of Geography and Regional Research, University of Vienna, Austria and a second master and a doctoral degree in GISc at the Department of Geography, State University of New York at Buffalo, US. He is currently a Professor of Geography in the Department of Geography and Anthropology, Louisiana State University, US and a faculty member in the Doctoral College "GIScience" at the University of Salzburg, Austria. He has previously received a Fulbright Scholarship and is the recipient of the 2007 Meredith F. Burrill Award from the Association of American Geographers. His research interests are in GISc and its application to spatial crime analysis, medical geography, and geospatial privacy. He has published two co-authored books, one single-edited book and 40+ refereed articles and book chapters. He is the current editor of Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CaGIS).

  • Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Verwenden Sie zum Lesen die kostenlose Software Adobe Reader, Adobe Digital Editions oder einen anderen PDF-Viewer Ihrer Wahl (siehe E-Book Hilfe).
  • Tablet/Smartphone (Android; iOS): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose App Adobe Digital Editions oder die App PocketBook (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein „weicher” Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich – sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
