Urban and Regional Information Infrastructure
Planning for urban regeneration should involve many analyses and estimates with regard to the urban and regional situation. These should consider issues such as population, land use, urban activity, market tendency, physical environment, and so forth within possible regeneration strategies. Future population estimation is indispensable in developing a general master plan for a city. An understanding of the current land use pattern is essential in determining new zoning regulations. The rise and decline tendency of industrial activity is a key issue in deciding the direction of urban regeneration. Local as well as global market trends are further important factors. All these analyses require a variety of urban and regional databases, together with an efficient system that can handle such information properly. This whole system is the urban and regional information infrastructure.
