  • England ; Investment ; Manchester ; Real estate development ; Real estate property ; United Kingdom ; Urban development ; Urban policy ; Urban renewal ; Urbanism
  • Attention is often focused on institutional investors' motives for holding regeneration investments and on how they might be encouraged to put more money into inner-city areas. The paper argues that the impact of such an approach upon urban
  • regeneration may be limited. Independent developers embrace the challenge presented by fringe locations, mixed uses and the local urban culture, and translate these characteristics into development values. The AA. choose Manchester as an example.

  • The use of remote sensing and landscape metrics to describe structures and changes in urban land uses
  • California ; Image analysis ; Land use ; United States of America ; Urban area ; Urban density ; Urban environment ; Urban landscape
  • The study introduces a methodology using information on image spatial form to describe urban land-use structures and land-cover changes that result from urban growth. The analysis is based on spatial analysis of land-cover structures mapped from
  • digitally classified of aerial photographs of the urban region Santa Barbara, California. The results show a useful separation and characterization of three urban land-use types : commercial development, high-density residential, and low-density residential
  • . Several important structural land-cover features are identified. For two test areas in the region, changes in the urban spatial land-use structure can be described and quantified with landscape metrics.

  • In this study, the AA. adopt the principles of quasi-experimental design to collect the data, which are examined with a multilevel model in the cities of Ranstad Holland. The results indicate that urban form and network type have only a modest

  • Geographers have begun to consider animals and the urban moral landscape, and assess competing rubrics of planning practice as they relate to animals in the city. Together, these efforts suggest a research agenda for urban geographers interested
  • in human-animal relations, that may help bridge gaps between human and physical geography, and propel the study of nature-society relations to the fore in urban geography.

  • A review of scaling theory for hardware models and application to an urban dew model
  • Climatology ; Model ; Moisture ; Radiation ; Scale ; Temperature ; Urban climate
  • This paper reviews scaling theory for hardware models for physical geographers, especially those interested in micro- and urban climates, and out-of-doors models. Criteria addressed dealt with physical domains (i.e., space, time, and temperature
  • fields), physical processes such as radiation, conduction and convection, and discrete enclosures such as buildings. A case study from the field of urban climatology is presented : the out-of-doors scale model constructed by the A. to study urban dew.
