Call for Submissions

Place has been a fundamental concept in landscape planning and design which influences people's perception and use of spaces. A meaningful reflection on the sense of place would improve our understanding of place, assist the planning and design processes, and hence enhance the performance of designed spaces. However, place has been an elusive concept that challenges the intention to grasp it over the past decades. Recent advancements in technologies have made it possible to study people's sense of place through computational means. First, the use of digital social media leaves permanent traces in various forms during people's communication with others, and potentially such user-generated data reflects people's subjective experiences with their environments. Second, data analytic technologies have enabled effective and efficient content analysis, which incorporates multimedia data into the process. However, how to integrate the computation results about sense of place in landscape planning and design is still a challenge. This calls for a collaborative exploration between geographic science and planning and design practice.

We envision presentations that examine topics regarding the theoretical, methodological, and implementation aspects of developing sense of place through computational means for landscape planning and design. We hope to facilitate dialogs on scientific research, technology evolvement, and community engagement for creating a sustainable future of public-involved landscape planning and design.

Specific topics include (but are not limited to):
• Place-based GIS
• Integration of geospatial technologies with landscape planning and design
• Data driven geographical representation construction
• Place-based community engagement
