This book showcases the different ways in which contemporary forms of data analysis are being used in urban planning and management. It highlights the emerging possibilities that city-regional governance, technology and data have for better planning and urban management - and discusses how you can apply them to your research.

Including perspectives from across the globe, it’s packed with examples of good practice and helps to demystify the process of using big and open data.

  • Learn about different kinds of emergent data sources and how they are processed, visualised and presented.
  • Understand how spatial analysis and GIS are used in city planning.
  • See examples of how contemporary data analytics methods are being applied in a variety of contexts, such as ‘smart’ city management and megacities.

Aimed at upper undergraduate and postgraduate students studying spatial analysis and planning, this timely text is the perfect companion to enable you to apply data analytics approaches in your research.
