The process of urban analysis and simulation includes an initial data collection and stakeholder engagement phase, followed by research and spatial analysis to understand the historic and current urban and natural conditions of the area of interest. We utilize remote sensing and satellite technology in order to assess land cover and land use changes over time. This is followed by urban growth simulation and modeling, which considers future shifts in populations, assets and market demands, and the distribution of green and grey infrastructure.
This approach considers current and proposed policies and the impacts these are likely to have on future development. Throughout the project we engage stakeholders and local experts in discussion of the context and preliminary results of the analysis, in order to validate and advance the studies, as well as to understand how the results can be most effectively utilized.
