Medical geography is a fascinating area of rapidly evolving study that aims to analyse and improve worldwide health issues based on the geographical factors which have an impact on them. Perspectives in Medical Geography will appeal to both novice and seasoned researchers looking to be informed on the latest theories and applications in the field. Chapters represent a wide range of industries, ranging from private/public universities to private companies to non-profit foundations. Contributors describe ways in which map and geography librarians can engage in public health research – creating data standards, archiving map collections and providing mapping/GIS services. In addition to compiling current theories and practices related to medical geography, this volume also features commentaries from two pre-eminent geography librarians, sharing their perspectives on this emerging field and how map and geographic information librarians can engage in health-related research through their profession. This book was originally published as two special issues of the Journal of Map & Geography Libraries.

Bei der Geografie geht es langst nicht nur darum, zu wissen, wo welches Land oder welcher Fluss zu finden ist. "Geografie fur Dummies" erklart Ihnen, wie das geografische Koordinatensystem aufgebaut ist, wie man damit Orte bestimmt und so Karten richtig deutet. Im Mittelpunkt des Buches stehen die Geofaktoren Boden, Wasser und Klima und deren Wechselwirkungen miteinander: Wie formen Vulkane, Erosion und Wetter die Erdoberflache? Wie beeinflussen die Ozeane das Klima? Und wie ist es moglich, dass Wuste und Regenwald nur durch eine Bergkette voneinander getrennt sind? Aber auch der Einfluss des Menschen kommt nicht zu kurz, so wird auch die urbane, politische und wirtschaftliche Geografie erlautert. Egal, ob Sie wissen mochten, wie das Klima die Erde beeinflusst oder wo ein gunstiger Standort fur das nachste Eigenheim ware, dieses Buch liefert Ihnen alle Antworten.

The Sustainable City IX

Release Date: 2014-09-23
Genre: Architecture

Containing the proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability this book addresses the multi-disciplinary aspects of urban planning; a result of the increasing size of cities; the amount of resources and services required and the complexity of modern society. Most of earth’s population now lives in cities and the process of urbanisation still continues generating many problems deriving from the drift of the population towards them. These problems can be resolved by cities becoming efficient habitats, saving resources in a way that improves the quality and standard of living. The process however, faces a number of major challenges, related to reducing pollution, improving main transportation and infrastructure systems. New urban solutions are required to optimise the use of space and energy resources leading to improvements in the environment, i.e. reduction in air, water and soil pollution as well as efficient ways to deal with waste generation. These challenges contribute to the development of social and economic imbalances and require the development of new solutions. Large cities are probably the most complex mechanisms to manage. However, despite such complexity they represent a fertile ground for architects, engineers, city planners, social and political scientists, and other professionals able to conceive new ideas and time them according to technological advances and human requirements. The challenge of planning sustainable cities lies in considering their dynamics, the exchange of energy and matter, and the function and maintenance of ordered structures directly or indirectly, supplied and maintained by natural systems. Topics covered include: Urban strategies; Planning, development and management; Urban conservation and regeneration; The community and the city; Eco-town planning; Landscape planning and design; Environmental management; Sustainable energy and the city; Transportation; Quality of life; Waterfront development; Case studies; Architectural issues; Cultural heritage issues; Intelligent environment and emerging technologies; Planning for risk; Disaster and emergency response; Safety and security; Waste management; Infrastructure and society; Urban metabolism.

Das Buch versteht sich als breit angelegte, methodische Einführung für Praktiker und Studenten. Die Ausarbeitung stellt ein breites Grundlagenwerk dar, das vielfältige Aspekte der Geoinformatik erläutert. Dabei stehen nicht Geoinformationssysteme im Vordergrund (das Werk hat ein Kapitel GIS), vielmehr werden auch Grundlagen der Kartographie und Vermessung aufgezeigt. Hierbei wird eine Auswahl getroffen. So werden nicht sämtliche Kartenprojektionen erläutert, aber Prinzipien verdeutlicht, soweit sie im Rahmen der Geoinformatik wichtig sind. Hierdurch sollen Grundlagen für das Arbeiten mit Koordinaten gelegt werden. In ähnlicher Weise werden die übrigen Inhalte behandelt. In der zweiten Auflage wurden alle Inhalte erweitert.
