Remnants of Scottish stone architecture in Nova Scotia. (2011)
Journal Article
LAING, R. and SCOTT, J. 2011. Remnants of Scottish stone architecture in Nova Scotia. International journal of heritage studies [online], 17(5), pages 478-496. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1080/13527258.2011.583669

During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, thousands of Scottish emigrants travelled to Canada. This paper concerns those buildings that were designed and constructed by Scottish settlers, utilising skills and materials transported from their ho...

The application of visual environmental economics in the study of public preference and urban greenspace. (2009)
Journal Article
LAING, R., DAVIES, A.-M., MILLER, D., CONNIFF, A., SCOTT, S. and MORRICE, J. 2009. The application of visual environmental economics in the study of public preference and urban greenspace. Environment and planning B: urban analytics and city science [online], 36(2), pages 355-375. Available from: https://doi.org/10.106/b33140

Urban greenspace has consistently been argued to be of great importance to the wellbeing, health, and daily lives of residents and users. This paper reports results from a study which combined the visualisation of public greenspace with environmental...

Design and use of a virtual heritage model to enable a comparison of active navigation of buildings and spaces with passive observation. (2007)
Journal Article
LAING, R., CONNIFF, A., CRAIG, T., GALAN-DIAZ, C. and SCOTT, S. 2007. Design and use of a virtual heritage model to enable a comparison of active navigation of buildings and spaces with passive observation. Automation in construction [online], 16(6), pages 830-841. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.autcon.2007.02.006

Wide ranging and significant research in recent years has highlighted the need for greater levels of engagement with end users in planning and design of the built environment. This has been against a background of far reaching advances in IT technolo...

Urban green space: the incorporation of environmental values in a decision support system. (2006)
Journal Article
LAING, R., MILLER, D., DAVIES, A.-M. and SCOTT, S. 2006. Urban green space: the incorporation of environmental values in a decision support system. Journal of information technology in construction [online], 11, pages 177-196. Available from: https://www.itcon.org/paper/2006/14

This paper provides an overview of work undertaken on measuring the environmental values of green spaces, coupled with spatial analysis tools for aiding decision relating to the planning of urban green spaces. The work involved a complex array of dat... Read More about Urban green space: the incorporation of environmental values in a decision support system..

The application of 3D modelling techniques in built environment evaluation. (2004)
Journal Article
LAING, R., DAVIES, A.-M., HARGREAVES, A. and SCOTT, S. 2004. The application of 3D modelling techniques in built environment evaluation. Studies in regional and urban planning, 10, pages 119-127.

This paper describes a series of methodologies for use in evaluation of the built environment. The use of virtual models within Architecture and Engineering is widespread at the design stage, but has to date been limited in terms of application and i...
