Handbook of Research on Developing Smart Cities Based on Digital Twins

Matteo Del Giudice

The advent of connected, smart technologies for the built environment may promise a significant value that has to be reached to develop digital city models. At the international level, the role of digital twin is strictly related to massive amounts of data that need to be processed, which proposes several challenges in terms of digital technologies capability, computing, interoperability, simulation, calibration, and representation. In these terms, the development of 3D parametric models as digital twins to evaluate energy assessment of private and public buildings is considered one of the main challenges of the last years. The ability to gather, manage, and communicate contents related to energy saving in buildings for the development of smart cities must be considered a specificity in the age of connection to increase citizen awareness of these fields. The Handbook of Research on Developing Smart Cities Based on Digital Twins contains in-depth research focused on the description of methods, processes, and tools that can be adopted to achieve smart city goals. The book presents a valid medium for disseminating innovative data management methods related to smart city topics. While highlighting topics such as data visualization, a web-based ICT platform, and data-sharing methods, this book is ideally intended for researchers in the building industry, energy, and computer science fields; public administrators; building managers; and energy professionals along with practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the implementation of smart technologies for the built environment.

Has It Come to This?

J.P. Sapinski

Geoengineering is the deliberate and large-scale intervention in the Earth's climate system in an attempt to mitigate the adverse effects of global warming. Now that a climate emergency is upon us, claims that geoengineering is inevitable are rapidly proliferating. How did we get into this? What options make it onto the table? Which are left out? Whom does geoengineering serve? These are some of the questions that the thinkers contributing to this volume are exploring.

The Hudson

Stephen P. Stanne

In this third edition of The Hudson, the authors – with over 70 years of combined experience teaching about the Hudson – have updated and improved their clearly written and engaging volume, covering the Hudson's diversity of plants and wildlife, the geological forces that created the river, the people who explored and settled its banks, the river's enduring place in American history and art, and the battles waged over its environmental preservation. The text reviews the latest developments in long-running controversies over power plants on the river and toxic PCB contamination, describes newly-recognized pollution issues, and adds a chapter on the impacts of climate change. The outlook is not all doom and gloom: The Hudson celebrates notable progress made in cleaning up the river, while outlining the challenges that must be met to complete the task. By approaching its subject from both the scientific and historical perspectives, the book promotes broad-based understanding of why the Hudson and its valley possess such a unique and fascinating identity, and of how this special ecosystem and landscape have played a defining role in the evolution of the environmental movement.
