Ein Konferenzbeitrag des Fachgebiets CPE auf der diesjährigen CUPUM(Computers in Urban Planning and Urban Management) in Kananda zu den neuen Vorteilen und Potentialen, die sich durch Sensorik, Geo- und Mobil- Web für die Stadtplaung ergeben.
Continuous observation and monitoring of developments and changes in quality of spatial phenomena has always been a central task in the urban, spatial and environmental planning at various scales. Similar to the discussion about Web 2.0, “monitoring” will be used in a very intense discussion of innovative planning methods. It means observation of a phenomenon over a longer period, with the result of using the knowledge gained on forecasts for a reactive or constructive control. It is evermore integrated in formal laws like in the EIA-Guideline of the European Union or in Federal German Building Code (BauGB § 3) for example. Observation processes and furthermore, issues like smart grids and energy efficiency gains incremental importance in the context of urban planning. The amount of potential useable geodata for planners is growing and there will the question how to make use of it. This trend is called the “Geoweb” and will enhance this field enormously and provide data for monitoring in the future. Especially the upcoming presence and rise of sensor data, mobile based planning methods for communication and “smart sensoring” with humans as “intelligent sensors” will contribute to that as well. The question for planners will be, what kind of data will be important and how to deal with heterogeneous data in general and how to interpret it. However, there will be a lot of research for the question, what role planners could play on this interface between real and digital world.
The research with Monitoring Laboratory Urban Planning at the University of Kaiserslautern aims to give an overview about new fields of research for planners and how and by what methods and techniques monitoring in this spatial and urban planning context could be used wisely.
