  • Characterising Land Cover Change in Brunei Darussalam’s Capital
           District

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In fast-developing regions like Southeast Asia monitoring urban areas presents a challenge given the lack of publicly available data. This is an issue that precludes the nuances of a city’s growth and undermines the way land use is considered with respect to planning. The issue of data availability is very much present in the small nation of Brunei. Little is still known about the spatiotemporal evolution of its urban realm in particular, with regard to its national development planning. The country presents an interesting case-study given the pursuit of two highly opposing master-plans within the last 40 years. Its first master plan advocated polycentric growth away from the capital city, Bandar Seri Begawan. Its latest plan, however, currently promotes compact growth within a predefined urban footprint as a development control mechanism. This paper looks at remotely-sensed satellite data to examine the way in which the two implemented master-plan strategies have translated into actual land-use thus far. It employs a supervised classification procedure and characterises urban land into three typologies: urban infill, edge growth, and leapfrog growth. The paper’s findings suggest that residential developments play a stronger role in driving urban growth in Brunei. This is particularly true for public housing, which has typically persisted in isolated pockets of low density at the city fringe. This study has produced a novel dataset of urban land use and land cover in Brunei; and, its quantification may prove useful in understanding the impacts of master planning and the formulation of development policies both within Brunei, and the wider Southeast Asian region.

  • Comparing Intercity Mobility Patterns among Different Holidays in China: a
           Big Data Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With the relaxation of migration control and the rapid development of transportation in China, intercity mobility has remarkable effects on population distribution and regional economic development. Based on Tencent migration data of 2018, this study compares different intercity mobility patterns among different holidays and identifies the influencing factors using spatial and statistical analysis methods. The holidays consist of traditional holidays (Spring Festival, Tomb-sweeping Day, Dragon Boat Festival, and Mid-Autumn Festival) and non-traditional holidays (New Year’s Day, May Day and National Day). The results are demonstrated below: 1) The spatial patterns of intercity mobility vary markedly from non-traditional holidays to traditional holidays, directly reflected in the distribution of main destination cities. 2) Regional attributes, including administrative divisions, geographical divisions, and dialect divisions, do affect the intercity mobility patterns in different holidays, and people in the south are more inclined to travel on traditional holidays and pay more attention to traditions; 3) Various travel purposes, distances and scales emerge in different holidays; 4) Economic factors at the city level are more associated with working place selections, and the destination choices during non-traditional holidays are influenced more by tourism factors. This comparative study of intercity mobility patterns among holidays has significant policy implications for allocating transportation resources and optimizing city hierarchical structure.

  • Using an index of wellbeing for older people in small areas of Australia
           to assist identifying services required

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: s For older people, place is crucial as it is where support networks, social relationships and family are. Older people develop a sense of belonging to their local community through participation and place is strongly linked to personal histories. For older people, ageing in their own home also allows for continuity of relationships and informal support networks in the area. While there are significant benefits of ageing in place, for older people with low wellbeing, the provision of services is going to be essential to allow them to age in place. Therefore, this article aims to identify areas where older people have low wellbeing using an index of wellbeing developed using a range of data; and to show how the domains and indicators can be used to identify why older people in an area have low wellbeing. This analysis can then be used to help to identify what types of services are required to improve wellbeing in an area of low wellbeing best.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study employs city-level data from China to examine the spatially-varying effects of human capital on urban innovation, applying the multi-scale geographically weighted regression model to the knowledge production function. The results demonstrate that the effects of various determinants-including human capital, industrial structures, research and development investment, environmental quality, economic development levels-on innovation prompt different spatial patterns and ranges of influence, among which human capital significantly enhances the level of innovation with the strongest scale effects. Hence different policies should be formulated in cities of diverse conditions that are sensitive to their contexts.

  • Examining Multilevel Poverty-Causing Factors in Poor Villages: a
           Hierarchical Spatial Regression Model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The examination of poverty-causing factors and their mechanisms of action in poverty-stricken villages is an important topic associated with poverty reduction issues. Although the individual or background effects of multilevel influencing factors have been considered in some previous studies, the spatial effects of these factors are rarely involved. By considering nested geographic and administrative features and integrating the detection of individual, background, and spatial effects, a bilevel hierarchical spatial linear model (HSLM) is established in this study to identify the multilevel significant factors that cause poverty in poor villages, as well as the mechanisms through which these factors contribute to poverty at both the village and county levels. An experimental test in the region of the Wuling Mountains in central China revealed the following findings. (1) There were significant background and spatial effects in the study area. Moreover, 48.28% of the overall difference in poverty incidence in poor villages resulted from individual effects at the village level. Additionally, 51.72% of the overall difference resulted from background effects at the county level. (2) Poverty-causing factors were observed at different levels, and these factors featured different action mechanisms. Village-level factors accounted for 14.29% of the overall difference in poverty incidence, and there were five significant village-level factors. (3) The hierarchical spatial regression model was found to be superior to the hierarchical linear model in terms of goodness of fit. This study offers technical support and policy guidance for village-level regional development.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper aims to estimate the level of technical inefficiency in the hotel sector of a major tourist destination of Europe, the Canary Islands, exploring the relevance of agglomeration processes in efficiency levels. To do this, a complete dataset of the hotel supply for the period 2010–2016 is used. A translog production frontier and an inefficiency function are estimated in a single-stage sampling procedure. Results suggest an aggregate technical inefficiency of approximately 32%. Furthermore, technical efficiency seems to be decreasing with market concentration and congestion, and increasing in agglomeration economies.

  • Identifying the Spatial Heterogeneity in the Effects of the Social
           Environment on Housing Rents in Guangzhou, China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Housing rents in cities is an important topic in the study of urban geography and an area that needs to be focused on to develop livable cities. As a critical component of the urban environment, the social environment influences housing rents and should not be neglected. However, little research examines how spatial heterogeneity in the social environment impacts housing rents. To address this gap, this paper performs a case study of Guangzhou, China and constructs a livability-oriented social environment conceptual framework that covers five aspects: educational background, occupation, unemployment, floating population, and rental household. It then develops datasets of the influencing factors such as the social environment as well as the building, convenience, physical environment, and location characteristics for 1,328 communities in Guangzhou. Ordinary least squares (OLS) and mixed geographically weighted regression (mixed GWR) model are then employed for further analyses. The results show that the mixed GWR model is more effective than the OLS and classical GWR models. Four aspects of the social environment—educational background, occupation, floating population, and rental household—have a spatially heterogeneous relationship with housing rents. The impact of the social environment on housing rents is more evident in suburban districts. The current findings help to better understand the spatial limitation of the social environment’s impact on housing rents, which enables policy makers to develop evidence-based, spatially differentiated affordable rental housing programs and provides theoretical support for the development of livable cities.

  • Spatial Dynamics Regarding Geographical Concentration of Economic
           Activities. Italian NUTS-3 Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For several years, the themes concerning agglomeration economies have been approached from different perspectives in the scientific debate, as capable of triggering various positive features. The present research starts precisely where many others arrive, that is, given the value of these externalities, analyzing the spatial distribution of the geographical concentration of economic activities and the related influencing factors. To this end, in this contribution an explanatory investigation is carried out into the spatial dynamics deriving from main productive sectors’ concentration in some Italian regions. The proposed methodological approach is based respectively on the LISA spatial autocorrelation models and on the analysis of non-neighboring clusters to understand if the geographical area of reference and / or the particular production sector are influencing variables. The empirical investigation confirms the presence of a parametric interaction between factors related in some cases on the geographical context and in others on the productive sector.

  • Geographic and Temporal Access to Basic Banking Services Offered through
           Post Offices in Wales

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Access to ‘universal banking services’ through the post office network has been a goal of the UK governments over the last twenty years. Various policies and mechanisms have been put in place in an attempt to maintain national geographical coverage with access points while increasing the financial viability of the network. One such mechanism is represented by the six official criteria for access to post offices, expressed as a percentage of the UK population living within one mile, three miles, and six miles of a post office. The method for calculating compliance with these access criteria is not published. Nor will any granular results be published, but only an annual statement that the criteria are being met. This article examines geographical and temporal access to post offices in order to understand the territorial coverage of the network and the impact this has on the provision of basic banking services. The area under investigation is Wales, for which we are reviewing the Government’s official access criteria. Through the Post Office Ltd website, we are collecting up-to-date information on the locations and opening hours of post offices in Wales. In addition, a detailed population grid is combined with calculated areas of equidistant geographical access, called isochrones, to determine the number of people who have access to the post office network. The isochrones are based on the Welsh road network and are calculated for different travel modes and thresholds using a powerful routing engine. Our results show that the official access criteria are largely unmet in Wales. In addition, and in contrast to previous studies, we show a rural-urban divide not in terms of spatial access, but in the combination of spatial and temporal access. The results are of both practical and theoretical value and will hopefully inform policy makers.

  • Extraction and Evolution Analysis of Urban Built-Up Areas in Beijing,
           1984–2018

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Accurate extraction of the boundaries of urban built-up areas (UBA) based on remote sensing and GIS technology is extremely important for predicting urban spatial evolution. Therefore, this study proposes a method for extracting urban built-up areas based on the impervious surface aggregation density (ISAD) of an object and uses the long-time series of the built-up area extraction results to analyze the spatial and temporal evolution characteristics of Beijing cities. The results show that the precision for extracting UBA using this method is 91.3%, which is better than that of existing methods based on supervised classification. The extraction results can also accurately depict the urban form and maintain the integrity of the built-up areas. Built-up areas in Beijing expanded from 1984 to 2018, with the most significant expansion in 2014–2018. In these 5 years, the expansion speed and intensity of Beijing respectively reached 270.70 km2/a and 1.65%, which were 2.43 times that of the entire research period. Built-up areas in Beijing have been expanding past their original limits over time in a ‘centralized concentric circle’ expansion model. The focus of the UBA moved northeast by 11.56 km. In the past 35 years, the contours of Beijing’s urban borders have become increasingly complex, and the spatial form of built-up areas has become increasingly discrete. The analysis of the spatial evolution of UBA is beneficial for more sustainable, compact and coordinated urban development.

  • Progress Towards Using Linked Population-Based Data For Geohealth
           Research: Comparisons Of Aotearoa New Zealand And The United Kingdom

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Globally, geospatial concepts are becoming increasingly important in epidemiological and public health research. Individual level linked population-based data afford researchers with opportunities to undertake complex analyses unrivalled by other sources. However, there are significant challenges associated with using such data for impactful geohealth research. Issues range from extracting, linking and anonymising data, to the translation of findings into policy whilst working to often conflicting agendas of government and academia. Innovative organisational partnerships are therefore central to effective data use. To extend and develop existing collaborations between the institutions, in June 2019, authors from the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics and the Alan Turing Institute, London, visited the Geohealth Laboratory based at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. This paper provides an overview of insight shared during a two-day workshop considering aspects of linked population-based data for impactful geohealth research. Specifically, we discuss both the collaborative partnership between New Zealand’s Ministry of Health (MoH) and the University of Canterbury’s GeoHealth Lab and novel infrastructure, and commercial partnerships enabled through the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics and the Alan Turing Institute in the UK. We consider the New Zealand Integrated Data Infrastructure as a case study approach to population-based linked health data and compare similar approaches taken by the UK towards integrated data infrastructures, including the ESRC Big Data Network centres, the UK Biobank, and longitudinal cohorts. We reflect on and compare the geohealth landscapes in New Zealand and the UK to set out recommendations and considerations for this rapidly evolving discipline.

  • Spatio-Temporal Evolution of EIWB and Influencing Factors: An Empirical
           Study from the Yangtze River Delta

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The fundamental goal of sustainable urban development is to maximize the human well-being with minimum ecological consumption. Based on the comprehensive urban well-being and ecological consumption in the Yangtze River Delta from 2000 to 2017, this paper analyzed the spatio-temporal evolution characteristics and influencing factors of the ecological intensity of urban well-being (EIWB). The results show that the regional EIWB exhibited a declining annual trend, where less natural capital was consumed per-unit output of well-being. This suggested a gradual decoupling between urban well-being and natural capital consumption. The EIWB in most cities decreased at different rates and gradually evolved into low and lower type cities. In terms of coupling mode between comprehensive urban well-being and EIWB, the mode of low-EIWB with low-well-being and low-EIWB with high-well-being became increasingly dominant. The results also show the significant spatial association between comprehensive urban well-being and EIWB. The increase in urbanization level, the optimization of industrial structure, and the strengthening of environmental regulations had significantly negative effects on the EIWB. In contrast, population density and energy intensity had a positive and significant impact on EIWB, while the increase of consumption level had no significant influence on the EIWB.

  • Accessibility-Based Equity of Public Facilities: a Case Study in Xiamen,
           China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: China's rapid economic development has led to inequality in terms of property, education, and health. Equal access to basic public facilities has become a key concern of inclusive development policies. However, previous studies have paid little attention to the effects of different travel modes on the accessibility of basic public facilities. The present research fills this gap. Taking Xiamen city as a case study, it explores the degrees of horizontal and vertical equity by examining the accessibility of various basic public facilities, paying attention to different travel modes and travel times. The results for Xiamen city show that disadvantaged groups experience a greater level of inequity. By taking these aspects into account, one is better equipped to identify areas in the city where access to basic public facilities is in need of substantial improvement.

  • Location of Franchise Networks in the United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article focuses on the issue of location strategies for distribution networks. Our approach, essentially exploratory and empirical, is based on a cluster analysis from which we define and build an original indicator to study network location choice. First, we propose to identify clusters of franchise networks based on the endogenous characteristics of the networks. From these clusters, it is possible to identify standard location choices based on the location of the headend, the distance between the headend and its franchisees, and the spatial distance between the headend and the largest state in term of outlets. This method allows to estimate distances and construct an indicator, Network Linear Density, based on physical linear density. Our results, which confirm the lessons learned from the literature, show that franchise networks have specific location strategies, in line with the characteristics of the type of cluster in which they operate. We can foresee that if the characteristics of a network predispose it to belong to one of the three identified clusters, then we are also able to predict what the network’s location strategy might be.

  • Spatiotemporal Analysis of Cardiovascular Disease Mortality with
           Geographical Information Systems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the world, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are known as the type of disease with the highest mortality. The mortality rate for this disease is very high in Turkey. Therefore, studies on this disease may direct the activities to be carried out by public health workers/policy makers and effective surveillance studies. In this context, GIS-based spatial analysis offers critical tools to reveal the spatial epidemiology of the disease by modeling the spatial distribution of cardiovascular disease over time and to investigate the risk factors. In this study, it was aimed to analyze CVD mortality spatiotemporally with GIS-based methodologies and to reveal preliminary information on whether deaths from CVD are related to geographic location and environmental risk factors. Accordingly, CVD mortality that occurred in Turkey at province level between 2009 and 2018 was analyzed through spatial statistical tests (Global Moran's I, Getis-Ord General G, Anselin Local Morans I and Getis-Ord Gi*) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The results of spatiotemporal analysis were evaluated. Mortality caused by CVD was examined spatiotemporally with the help of the developed user interface program and spatially significant clusters of CVD were determined. Based on our findings, this study can contribute to understand the spatial nature of the disease and to provide the decision makers with required information on surveillance studies.

  • Insights Into the Correspondence Between Land Use Pattern and Spatial
           Distribution of Rail Transit Services

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The identification of the relationship between land use and transport lays the foundation for integrated land use and transport planning and management. This work aims to investigate how rail transit is linked to land use. The research on the relationship between land use and rail-based transport is dominated by the impacts of rail projects on land use, without an in-depth understanding of the reverse. However, it is important to note that issues of operation management rather than new constructions deserve greater attention for regions with established rail networks. Given that there is a correspondence between land use patterns and spatial distribution of heavy railway transit (HRT) services at such regions, the study area (i.e., the Netherlands) is partitioned by the Voronoi diagram of HRT stations and the causal relationship between land use and HRT services is examined by structural equation modeling (SEM). The case study of Helmond (a Dutch city) shows the potential of the SEM model for discussing the rail station selection problem in a multiple transit station region (MTSR). Furthermore, in this study, the node place model is adapted with the derivatives of the SEM model (i.e., the latent variable scores for rail service levels and land use characteristics), which are assigned as node and place indexes respectively, to analyze and differentiate the integration of land use and HRT services at the regional level. The answer to whether and how land use affects rail transit services from this study strengthens the scientific basis for rail transit operations management. The SEM model and the modified node place model are complementary to be used as analytical and decision-making tools for rail transit-oriented regional development.
