Description

In Europe, the emerging discipline of geodesign was earmarked by the first Geodesign Summit held in 2013 at the GeoFort, the Netherlands. Here researchers and practitioners from 28 different countries gathered to exchange ideas on how to merge the spatial sciences and design worlds. This book brings together experiences from this international group of spatial planners, architects, landscape designers, archaeologists, and geospatial scientists to explore the notion of `Geodesign thinking', whereby spatial technologies (such as integrated 3D modelling, network analysis, visualization tools, and information dashboards) are used to answer `what if' questions to design alternatives on aspects like urban visibility, flood risks, sustainability, economic development, heritage appreciation and public engagement. The book offers a single source of geodesign theory from a European perspective by first introducing the geodesign framework, then exploring various case studies on solving complex, dynamic, and multi-stakeholder design challenges. This book will appeal to practitioners and researchers alike who are eager to bring design analysis, intelligent planning, and consensus building to a whole new level.

Review Text

From the book reviews:

"Geodesign by Integrating Design and Geospatial Sciences is a concise and important book for learning about geodesign. ... For students, researchers, architects, urban planners and landscape design professionals together with practitioners it is highly recommended reading because it points to the future of how urban planning and design will probably evolve toward. It will cause you to think differently and to realize what design together with spatial sciences could become." (Jeff Thurston, 3dvisworld.com, February, 2015)

About Danbi J. Lee

Danbi J. Lee is an urban planner and geomatics specialist interested in the acquisition and application of spatial data in spatial planning and design processes. She is a Contributing Editor to GIM International Magazine, a leading trade magazine on geomatics technology developments from around the world. In 2013 she completed her MSc. research at Delft University of Technology on object-oriented land cover classification techniques for mapping urban surface infiltration capacity and is currently a researcher at the SPINlab of VU University Amsterdam.

Eduardo Dias believes that geo-information can help us make better choices. He divides his time between academia and industry. Eduardo teaches and researches geo-sciences at the VU University Amsterdam where he completed his PhD in economics on the value of location information in 2007. And he is the research coordinator of Geodan, an innovative company in Amsterdam that is 100% dedicated to solving society challenges using geospatial technology. With a background and interest in environmental science and economics, Eduardo is trying to use spatial technology to enable citizens (and all stakeholders) to meaningfully engage in decision making processes.

Henk J. Scholten is the founder and CEO of Geodan, one of the largest European companies specialized in geospatial information technology. He is also a Professor of Spatial Informatics and Director of the SPINlab at VU University Amsterdam. He studied Mathematics and Geography at VU University Amsterdam and obtained his PhD on the subject of models for housing allocation at the Faculty of Geography, University of Utrecht in 1988. Prof. Scholten received a Royal Decoration in 2005 for his significant contribution to geo-information, both on a national and international level, and the `Lifetime Achievement Award' by Jack Dangermond, founder of ESRI in 2009. This award is given to a person who has contributed significantly to advancing the science and technology of GIS throughout his career.
