Computational Urban Planning

Sometimes mundane interactions can lead to interesting ideas. I was talking to a friend about what could be a worthwhile research problem. We thought that how nice it would be to be able to design better cities, towns, and villages. Most of our rural infrastructure is unplanned. And most of our cities are poorly designed. If we could plan our future cities, towns and villages in a better way, quality of life and the human condition could be improved tremendously. In this article, I am sharing online resources that are relevant for computational urban/town planning.

Application of Advanced Hybrid Genetic Algorithms for Optimal Locations of High School

In this study, an advanced hybrid genetic algorithms is formulated and applied to the optimal location of high schools in a rural area of Bangladesh. The advanced hybrid algorithms consist of genetic algorithm and alternating location allocation algorithm. The model…

City Planning with a Multiobjective Genetic Algorithm and a Pareto Set Scanner

A genetic algorithm was used to search for optimal future land use and transportation plans for a pair of high-growth cities. Hundreds of thousands of plans were considered. Constraints were imposed to insure adequate housing for future residents. Objectives included…
