Although land-use planning approaches and tools vary widely across Europe, their diversity and character are surprisingly under-researched and, therefore, poorly understood.
In times of advancing digitization, this hinders progress by preventing systematic standardizations of land-use regulations. These are necessary for integrating land-use planning into simulations of land-use change for larger regions and, thus, overcoming the drawbacks of using traditional 2-D land-use plans to regulate the three-dimensional built environment.
With the SILAR project, we aim to conceptualize land-use regulation in Europe in times of digital transformation and, based on this, develop tools for integrating land-use specifications from digital plans into urban land-use simulations.
