Sustainable Urban Form, Accessibility and Travel
79,00 € *

Cities around the world are implementing sustainable urban form policies to alter mobility patterns. In this book, we reframe these policies as multimodal accessible city policies, emphasising accessibility as an important additional explanatory variable of travel behaviour. We focus our research on polycentric urban development policy, which can be seen as a feasible sustainable urban form policy to large cities and metropolitan areas. We found car commuting and public transport commuting to be phenomena explained by different variables, in which car commuting is mainly a socio-economic driven phenomenon, while public transport commuting is mainly a land-use driven phenomenon. However, the analysis of commuting impacts resulting from the relocation of workers and residents points to a negligible commuting impact on residents, who are mainly car commuters, but a negative impact on the commuting patterns of workers, whose car usage has significantly increased as a result of the workplace relocation. Therefore, we argue that polycentric urban development is an important urban policy, but not sufficient, to achieve the desired sustainable commuting patterns.

MARS - Metropolitan Activity Relocation Simulator
68,00 € *

Sustainability is one of today's major public concerns. Urban sprawl, pollution and consumption of non-renewable resources indicate that transport and land use of cities worldwide is not sustainable. Urban planning has become increasingly complex. Decision support tools are essential to help to achieve objectives. Land use and transport form a linked dynamic system. Therefore integrated land use and transport models are the appropriate tool. The book describes the development and use of the integrated, dynamic land use and transport model MARS (Metropolitan Activity Relocation Simulation). The underlying hypothesis is that cities are self-organising systems and that the principles of Systems Dynamics and Synergetics can be applied. Causal loop diagrams are used to develop a qualitative model. A quantitative model is built and written into code. A comparison between historical data and model results demonstrates the usefulness of MARS. A user friendly interface is introduced. The results from three case studies from Vienna, Madrid and Hanoi are presented. The book is aimed decision makers, transport planners, researchers, lecturers as well as the interested public.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Kansas City Metropolitan Area is a fifteen-county metropolitan area straddling the border between the states of Missouri and Kansas that is anchored by Kansas City, Missouri. In 2008, it was estimated to have a population numbering just over 2 million. The metro is the second largest metropolitan area in Missouri after Greater St. Louis and is the largest metropolitan area with territory in Kansas, though the Wichita Metropolitan Area is the largest metropolitan area that is actually anchored in Kansas. Satellite cities over 100,000 population in the metropolitan area include Independence, Missouri, Kansas City, Kansas, Olathe, Kansas, and Overland Park, Kansas. In 2007, Worldwide ERC and Primary Relocation recognized Kansas City third overall as one of the "Best Cities for Relocating Families" in the United States. Also in May 2008, Money rated Overland Park, Kansas, 9th best city to live in the United States. Neighboring city Olathe, Kansas, was rated 11th and Shawnee, Kansas, 39th best. Kansas City is one of 2 metro areas to have 2 cities in the top fifteen.

Service Network Design of Bike Sharing Systems
105,81 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This monograph presents a tactical planning approach for service network design in metropolitan areas. Designing the service network requires the suitable aggregation of demand data as well as the anticipation of operational relocation decisions. To this end, an integrated approach of data analysis and mathematical optimization is introduced. The book also includes a case study based on real-world data to demonstrate the benefit of the proposed service network design approach. The target audience comprises primarily research experts in the field of traffic engineering, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.

Home Team
65,90 CHF *

Most books that study professional sports concentrate on teams and leagues. In contrast, Home Team studies the connections between professional team sports in North America and the places where teams play. It examines the relationships between the four major professional team sports--baseball, basketball, football, and hockey--and the cities that attach their names, their hearts, and their increasing amount of tax dollars to big league teams. From the names on their uniforms to the loyalties of their fans, teams are tied to the places in which they play. Nonetheless, teams, like other urban businesses, are affected by changes in their environments--like the flight of their customers to suburbs and changes in local political climates. In Home Team, professional sports are scrutinized in the larger context of the metropolitan areas that surround and support them. Michael Danielson is particularly interested in the political aspects of the connections between professional sports teams and cities. He points out that local and state governments are now major players in the competition for franchises, providing increasingly lavish publicly funded facilities for what are, in fact, private business ventures. As a result, professional sports enterprises, which have insisted that private leagues rather than public laws be the proper means of regulating games, have become powerful political players, seeking additional benefits from government, often playing off one city against another. The wide variety of governmental responses reflects the enormous diversity of urban and state politics in the United States and in the Canadian cities and provinces that host professional teams. Home Team collects a vast amount of data, much of it difficult to find elsewhere, including information on the relocation of franchises, expansion teams, new leagues, stadium development, and the political influence of the rich cast of characters involved in the ongoing contests over where teams will play and who will pay. Everyone who is interested in the present condition and future prospects of professional sports will be captivated by this informative and provocative new book.

The Micro-Analysis of Regional Economy in China
244,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book presents the comprehensive research findings on the basic features, formation mechanisms and evolution laws of Chinese enterprise migration, from the micro-perspective of enterprise migration; and on this basis, the influences from enterprise migration on industrial agglomeration and diffusion as well as the evolution of regional economy. The migration trends, power mechanisms, determining factors, structural and spatial effects of Chinese manufacturing industry have also been studied. The author also puts forward policy advice on the themes above, such as the central government should pay more attention to the fairness goals in the market economy framework; some policies should be improved to positively and reasonably guide and regulate firm relocation in China, for example, enterprises from Chinese coastal areas should be encouraged to move to the mid and west areas; the industrialization and urbanization in mid and west areas should be accelerated; the economic development should be geared to the bearing capacity of natural resources and environment; industries and economic activities should be promoted to agglomerate effectively in metropolitan regions.This book provides a comprehensive analysis on the relocation of enterprises in China, as well as the situation of China's regional economic development. The author, Wei Houkai, as an authoritative economist on regional development of China, completed his detailed survey on China's regional economy from this perspective of enterprise relocation, together with his research group. This book, doubtlessly, provides a valuable opportunity for readers in English world to obtain the realistic and rational messages about what is happening in China in certain domains. The author, whose policy advice has always been adopted by the government of China, raises some significant viewpoints based on his distinctive insight, which may be influencing the regional development route in China.
