ur-scape in Bandung Institute of Technology

 

16 Nov 2018 | The ur-scape team was invited by the Department of Architecture and Department of Urban Planning of Bandung Institute of Technology, to give a talk about ur-scape and its applications in urban planning and design. The team shared with the students and faculty the theoretical background of ur-scape’s development and its pilot implementation in several Indonesian cities.

Final ur-scape Training in Bandung

15 Nov 2018 | The ur-scape team was invited to Bandung for a final training workshop with City Government Officials from Bandung’s various ministries and agencies – such as Diskominfo (Ministry of Communications and Information), Bappelitbang (Planning Development & Research Agency), the Health Department, Transport Department, Housing Department, Fire Department, Spatial Planning Department, Investment Department and Cooperation Department. Officials from the National Ministry of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning also flew down from Jakarta to join this training workshop.

 

During the workshop, the participants were trained on how to use ur-scape, and how to import their own data onto ur-scape. This was well-received by the participants as they now have the ability to upload their own data in the future. The workshop ended with a lively session of participants creating and presenting their own scenarios using a variety of data from various ministries/agencies.

 

 

ur-scape in Yale-NUS

The team shared with the students the background of ur-scape and its aims/principles, as well as a few use case scenarios on how data could be visualised and analysed on ur-scape.

 

The talk also broke out into discussion with the students where they had questions about data ownership, data processing and use of other types data on ur-scape for their field of study (such as qualitative data). Overall, ur-scape was received warmly and it was a great session engaging with the students.

Championing Data Sharing for Quality Spatial Planning in Indonesia

 

 

31 Jul – 01 Aug 2018 | As a Knowledge Partner to the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the ur-scape team was involved in two key ADB workshops in Indonesia, to strengthen quality of spatial planning in metropolitan areas in Indonesia for sustainable and resilient development through collaborative management of spatial data.

 

In Jakarta, a national workshop was held on 31st July, bringing together key national government agencies such as the Ministry of Agrarian Affairs and Spatial Planning, Bappenas (Ministry of National Planning), BPS (National Statistics Bureau), BIG (Agency of Geospatial Information) and the Ministry of Home Affairs. Similarly, a workshop was organised in Palembang on 1st August, bringing together key local agencies such as Bappeda (Regional Planning Agency) from each region and the Association of Indonesian Planners.

 

In both workshops, the topics of data sharing, management and collaboration were central to the discussions in strengthening the quality of spatial planning at metropolitan scales. ur-scape was used to raise awareness and demonstrate the importance of ensuring good quality of data, data sharing and management across multiple stakeholders involved in planning decisions, to ensure transparent and informed decision making processes.

 

Pilot Installation and Training at Bandung Command Centre

 

11 Jul 2018 | The ur-scape team flew down to Bandung for the pilot training and installation of ur-scape at the Bandung Command Centre, with members from the Applications Division of the Ministry of Communications and Information (Diskominfo). The Bandung Command Centre is an initiative to promote the city of Bandung towards becoming a smart city, with the aim of using innovative technologies to improve the quality of public services and decision support system.

 

The ur-scape team spent the first half of the session training the attendees on how to use ur-scape’s features, importing data, as well as diving deeper into more technical aspects of the application. The second half of the session broke out into a valuable open dialogue, where the Diskominfo team shared their feedback and aspirations for ur-scape.

 

Following the training session, ur-scape was installed into the main system and projected on the stunning central display at the Bandung Command Centre. What a monumental moment for ur-scape!

Urban Resilience: Palembang Metropolitan Area

11 May 2018  |  Four scenarios were prepared using data gathered from public sources on to examine resilience in various parts of the Palembang Metropolitan Area.

 

Scenario 1: Human Vulnerability
This scenario plots vulnerable settlements as defined by two data sets: population impoverishment and risk of flooding.

 

 

 

Scenario 2: Potential Development Areas
This scenario identifies suitable greenfield development areas in the region as defined by being accessible to existing transport networks, having low or no risk of flooding, and being relatively flat.

 

 

 

Scenario 3: Healthcare Accessibility
This scenario identifies those settlement and activity centers whose populations have good accessibility to general hospitals.

 

 

 

Scenario 4: Landfill Location Selection
This scenario identifies locations for landfills based on criteria that include being distant from heavily populated areas and incompatible land uses, with gentle terrain and low risk of flooding.
