IRSPSD aims to explore sustainable urban forms within the disciplines of regional and urban planning. Considering the impact of planning policy on spatial planning implementation, we seek to develop bodies of knowledge from original studies and promote critical debates on emerging issues and practice from researchers on an integrated multidisciplinary platform that reflects a variety of perspectives—such as economic development, social equality and equity, and ecological protection— with a holistic view of achieving sustainable urban form.

Two Concerns for City Information

Two concerns for city information are discussed. The first topic is the big data. Volume of information is increasing and sooner or later a better way to handle information may become necessary, that is to forget wisely. The second topic is the vague data. Casual information we often transmit is vague. A wiser operation to deal with vague data is essential. Both are the frontiers in studying city information.


Newly published issue

International Review for Spatial Planning and Sustainable Development, 2021, Vol. 9(4)

Eight papers published in this issue, are contributed from the studies of planning perception on bigdata and city information, livable urban streetscape, personal and socioeconomic perception to COVID19 risk; planning analysis on the choice of urban spaces in COVID-19 era; exploring planning implementation of spatial structure of Cities,  the Water-Nutrient-Food Nexus at the regional level;  and integrated Approach to evaluate the Urban Growth Patterns, depth Calculation and Connectivity in cities. All these studies across both developed and developing countries including Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Zimbabwe, Iran and Pakistan.
