A GIS-based Delineation and Typology for Local Urban Neighborhoods
Track: Community Planning and Economic Development
Authors: Alexandra Hill, Marcel Schonlau
The importance of local urban neighborhoods (LUNs) for urban development processes is common sense, however, so far there is no common approach to demarcate LUNs area-wide for cities or regions. Using data of the official German geo-information system a ModelBuilder tool for automated delineation and a LUN typology are developed. This project demonstrates a useful application of GIS in research aiming to support political decision-making in urban planning.
