New article released in Landscape & Urban Planning

Our new research assessing the urban transformation in Western China has been published in this month's issue of Landscape & Urban Planning.  The work, funded by a NASA Land Cover-Land Use Change grant, focuses on the post-reform period (1988–2009) in four major metropolitan areas: Chengdu, Xi’an, Kunming, and Urumqi (shown below). The analysis exploits recent land change maps, satellite images, socioeconomic data, and master planning documents, and draws on a variety of spatial and statistical measures to estimate urban patterns through space and time.  Check out the full article here for more information.
