REMOTE SENSING TECHNOLOGIES AND GEOSPATIAL MODELLING HIERARCHY FOR SMART CITY SUPPORT
Keywords: Smart city, Decision-making support, Remote sensing technology, Geospatial modelling, City development forecasting
Abstract. The approach to implementing the remote sensing technologies and geospatial modelling for smart city support is presented. The hierarchical structure and basic components of the smart city information support subsystem are considered. Some of the already available useful practical developments are described. These include city land use planning, urban vegetation analysis, thermal condition forecasting, geohazard detection, flooding risk assessment. Remote sensing data fusion approach for comprehensive geospatial analysis is discussed. Long-term city development forecasting by Forrester – Graham system dynamics model is provided over Kiev urban area.
