Special Issue “Big Data in Urban Land Use Planning” in Land.
With the development of urbanization and population growth, the problem of human–land conflict has become increasingly serious, and it is restricting the healthy and sustainable development of the urban landscape. Since the urban land use planning process is complex and involves social, economic, environmental, and political systems, knowledge of how these systems interact is the domain of professional planners. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and big data technology present planners with a ripe opportunity to critically assess their approaches and explore how new data collection, analysis, and methods can augment their understanding of places, as they seek to anticipate a future with an overall improved quality of life. Artificial intelligence (AI) and big data technology can offer access to more and enhanced information regarding travel patterns, energy consumption, land utilization, and environmental impacts, while also helping to better integrate these systems.
For this Special Issue, we invite you to submit original research articles and reviews that provide insights into big data and urban land use planning. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Application of artificial intelligence (AI) and big data technology in urban land management;
- Urban land use and transportation;
- Multi-source heterogeneous spatiotemporal data fusion of urban land;
- Geographic big data mining;
- Urban land use change detection.
