Description :
In this paper, the AA. identify the spatial distribution patterns of housing types, based on building footprints and their shapes and sizes, identified from Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data. They also utilize an Internet telephone directory NTT iTown Page data to separate residential and non-residential buildings. The AA. found that the housing types are well associated with household units per administrative block known as Chome (smallest administration unit). This result can be used in miro-scale analysis, and public facility management where detailed census data is not available.
