Description & Coverage
Description:

Traditional urban planning has progressed greatly thanks to developments in technology. Such technological advancements have created a new form of urban planning referred to as e-planning, which incorporates the traditional elements of urban planning with information communication technologies. Although progressing rapidly into the professional world, research on the use of ICTs in urban planning remains very minimal.

The Handbook of Research on E-Planning: ICTs for Urban Development and Monitoring provides relevant theoretical perspectives on the use of ICT in urban planning as well as an account of the most recent developments in the practice of e-planning in different regions of the world. Discussing theories and methods, citizen participation, and innovation in urban management in e-planning, this book is essential for those who want to improve their knowledge about the use of ICT in urban planning, focusing greatly on its strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Computer games and urban planning
