  1. 1. Geospatial Knowledge Discovery using Volunteered Geographic Information : a Complex System Perspective

    Author : Tao Jia; Bin Jiang; Yifang Ban; Itzhak Benenson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; knowledge discovery; urban systems; complex system; VGI; OSM; GPS tracking dataset; scaling; heavy-tailed distribution detection; urban sprawl; Zipf’s law; human activity mobility patterns; agent-based modeling; complex network.;

    Abstract : The continuous progression of urbanization has resulted in an increasing number of people living in cities or towns. In parallel, advancements in technologies, such as the Internet, telecommunications, and transportation, have allowed for better connectivity among people. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Principle of Scaling of Geographic Space and its Application in Urban Studies

    Author : Xintao Liu; Bin Jiang; Yifang Ban; Meng Liqiu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; geographic space; scaling; GIScience; VGI; OSM; heavy-tailed distribution; the head tail division rule; space syntax; nature street; urban sprawl; floating car data; hierarchical spatial structure;

    Abstract : Geographic space is the large-scale and continuous space that encircles the earth and in which human activities occur. The study of geographic space has drawn attention in many different fields and has been applied in a variety of studies, including those on cognition, urban planning and navigation systems.

  3. 3. Topological and Scaling Analysis of Geospatial Big Data

    Author : Ding Ma; Bin Jiang; Shaowen Wang; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Third definition of fractal; scaling; topology; power law; head tail breaks; ht-index; complex network; geospatial big data; natural cities; natural streets; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Geographic information science and systems face challenges related to understanding the instinctive heterogeneity of geographic space, since conventional geospatial analysis is mainly founded on Euclidean geometry and Gaussian statistics. This thesis adopts a new paradigm, based on fractal geometry and Paretian statistics for geospatial analysis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exploring Massive Volunteered Geographic Information for Geographic Knowledge Discovery

    Author : Jia Tao; Jiang Bin; Harrie Lars; KTH; []
    Keywords : VGI; OSM; Geographic knowledge discovery; Zipf’s law; Urban sprawl;

    Abstract : Conventionally geographic data produced and disseminated by the national mapping agencies are used for studying various urban issues. These data are not commonly available or accessible, but also are criticized for being expensive. However, this trend is changing along with the rise of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI).

  5. 5. Spatial-Temporal Patterns of Urban Growth in Shanghai, China: Monitoring, Analysis, and Simulation

    Author : Qian Zhang; Yifang Ban; Jiyuan Liu; Bin Jiang; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; urban growth; spatial-temporal pattern; remote sensing; spatial metrics; scenarios-based simulation; Shanghai; Geoengineering; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : Supporting huge population, megacities are definitely the hot spots of production, consumption, and waste generation. Without careful investment and planning, megacities will be overwhelmed by burgeoning negative impacts on the environment, natural resources, and human health, as well as a host of social and economic issues.
