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...

Aberdeen: one step at a time: how to prioritise movement of people and make walking cool.
Report
BELKOURI, D. and LAING, R. 2020. Aberdeen: one step at a time: how to prioritise movement of people and make walking cool. Hosted on the CIVITAS project website [online]. Available from: https://civitas.eu/document/one-step-time-aberdeen-site-portfolios

During the course of undertaking local evaluation within the PORTIS project in Aberdeen, our experience suggested that in order to develop a much deeper understanding of cause and effect in relation to walking within the city, we would need to collec...
