Learning Objectives

In week 6, you will learn about Sustainable Urban Development from the perspective of Digitization & Geo(Data).

The objectives are to:

  • look beyond smart cities, aiming for intelligent behaviour and smart citizens, leading to intelligent cities, which include ‘feedback loops’ of knowledge to users [6.1];
  • understand the need for open source, comparable and high-quality city data to facilitate learning across cities, both globally and locally [6.3];
  • study smart cities, smart citizens, smart grids, smart meters etc., while considering risks related to exclusion, access, responsibility and privacy issues [6.4];
  • understand how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) increasingly influences the transport system [6.4];
  • be aware of waste flows, energy potential mapping, and how various data and mapping methods help to find combined solutions for urban challenges related to water, energy, social economic and spatial issues [6.5];
  • acquire knowledge on how different forms of sensing technologies and GIS supported spatial analyses, can help to discover the relationship between urban form, human health and well-being [6.6];
  • gain insight into the organizational and governance challenges of providing 3D Geo-Information for a wide variety of urban applications [6.7].
