Currently our world is facing a migration process of a huge dimension – from rural to urban areas. In 1975 37.7% of the global population were urban dwellers, 1990 already 43%, today little over 50%, and in 2050 the expected number is 67.2%. This great process shapes new spatial urban landscapes, in dimension and pattern. In this study we aim at analyzing the spatial evolution of a once polynuclei urban area to a mega-region in a 35 years time frame. Using multi-temporal and multi-source… CONTINUE READING
