In recent years, to face the challenges caused by the climate change, the notion of climate resilience and specifically, urban ecological resilience, has been studied. Climate resilience is in focus of this paper and a subcategory of urban ecological resilience, which is defined as the urban resilience to the climate change.</p> <p>Also, urban green infrastructure has an established role as one of the strategies for adapting to climate change and for developing and promoting climate resilience in cities. Given the theoretical gap existing in this field, this question arises: "How and based on which features of the green infrastructure can we assess and analyze the climate resilience in a city?” To answer this question, the landscape ecology principles and relationship between these principles and the green infrastructure in the cities were used. The relationship was developed in the Yousef Abad neighborhood of Tehran and was qualitatively tested using the aerial images, field surveys and preparation of basic and analytical GIS maps. Finally, the "effective factors in assessing the climate resilience in cities using the urban green infrastructures based on landscape ecology" were obtained.</p> Elmira Shirgir, Reza Kheyroddin, Mostafa Behzadfar ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6250 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Mega-Event Organization Considering Safety, Security and Resilience http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6269 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>Cities become globally significant and attract national and international interest from all over the world with the help of mega-events, such as World EXPO and the Olympic Games. Mega-events highly require the involvement of various actors working together for the same overall purpose, although these actors have the responsibility of diverse target groups and require to use different resources. In his paper, we aim to understand the role of organizations in mega-events in relation to the socio-technical systems they operate. We consider security, safety and resilience articulated in six areas: planning, construction of the site, training, collaboration, communication and legacy, in three different time slots: before, during and after the event. Results include insights to enhance multi-organizational culture-based practice. The field studies conducted in Milan in 2015 and 2016 on Milan World EXPO 2015, and in London in 2012 and 2016 on the London Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012. The research findings are based on the experience of the real actors involved in these two events. The findings suggest several courses of action for decision-makers and emergency planners to safety and security design strategies that can facilitate resilience as a legacy of a mega-event.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Funda Atun Girgin, Ozlem Edizel Tasci ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6269 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 High speed rail and airport. Future scenarios in Marco Polo Airport in Venice http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6072 <p>This paper introduces an analysis of the possible extension of the catchment area of the Venice Marco Polo Airport, due to the implementation of a direct rail connection and the completion of the high speed/high capacity railway between Milan and Trieste. Both interventions are expected to generate an increase in the accessibility thresholds by rail to the airport. By constructing different scenarios based on the analysis of the evolution in mobility trends and settling patterns, retraced considering both demographic dynamics and&nbsp; large scale projects, this article estimates the effects generated by the new railway connections in terms of extension of the Marco Polo airport’s catchment area and the related impacts on air traffic, in terms of potential new passengers.&nbsp;</p> Paola Pucci, Giovanni Lanza ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6072 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Walking and talking: The effect of smartphone use and group conversation on pedestrian speed http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6088 <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>Distracted walking due to smartphone use is on the rise resulting in growing concern over pedestrian safety and well-being. Our study measured the walking speeds of pedestrian groups differentiated by their smartphone use in two different environments - a wide pedestrian bridge at a university, and a narrow footpath on a busy commercial street. The results show that groups of people, phone users, and often followers of phone users, walk significantly slower than solo walkers uninfluenced by phone. Especially on the narrow street, people in groups and phone users are seen to not only slow themselves down but also slow the people walking behind them.</p> </div> </div> </div> Lexie Reynolds Walsh, Tingsen (Tim) Xian, David Matthew Levinson, Hema Sharanya Rayaprolu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6088 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Elders’ quality of life. A method to optimize pedestrian accessibility to urban services. http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6272 <table> <tbody> <tr> <td> <p>The progressive ageing of population requires rethinking the spatial planning of the urban spaces and activities to guarantee the best accessibility and usability to urban services of interest for the elderly segment of the population. In this perspective, the paper provides a methodology oriented to reorganize the urban services to better satisfy the renewed needs of over 65, by classifying the areas of a city according to (i) the levels of urban accessibility and (ii) the Functional Accessibility Soft zones (FASzones). In fact, the FASzones are the parts of the city where elderly can easily reach their services of interest due to the presence of "optimal" pedestrian routes fitting their behaviours. The results provide local decision-makers with useful suggestions for deciding where and how to in on the distribution and location of services, in order to increase urban accessibility for the over 65 by improving their quality of life. This methodological aim represents a first step in the broader MOBILAGE research work aimed at defining strategies, tools and actions to improve the pedestrian accessibility to urban services and places for elderly users.</p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> Federica Gaglione, Carmela Gargiulo, Floriana Zucaro ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6272 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Land-Use and Transport integration polices and real estate values. The development of a GIS methodology and the application to Naples (Italy) http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6273 <p>The interactions between the Transport and the Land-Use Systems are complex and not widely analysed, causing uncertainties in decision-making processes. New governance tools are needed to support territorial transformations oriented to more sustainable use of soil resources, the transition towards more environmentally friendly transport modes and to greater accessibility equity to transport services. Moreover, these tools have to consider the interactions of external phenomena on the urban system, such as economic crisis and political issues. In this perspective, the research aims at developing a GIS-based methodology able to assess the impacts of interventions on the railway network and nodes on the urban environments, in terms of real estate values, as a proxy of urban requalification. The methodology consists of an ex-post spatial analysis procedure, applied to the city of Naples (Italy), where local and regional planning strategies, during the last decades, have been oriented towards an integrated approach between Transport and Land-Use Systems. The results show that in some catchment areas and concerning some types of properties, the effects of the world economic crisis on the real estate had less effect in terms of fall in prices. Moreover, the results show that the methodology is useful to quantitatively assess ex-post the main impacts of actions aimed at the integration between the Transport and Land-Use Systems, but its application could be extended to support the implementation of these strategies in different territorial context, on the basis of well-known best practices and their economic impacts on urban environment. &nbsp;</p> Gerardo Carpentieri, Carmen Guida, Paul Chorus ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6273 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Air Transport Implications in Tourist Destinations. The Trapani Airport in Western Sicily http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6298 <p>This search following the Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea (25,460 sq km) and a self-governing Region, located in the southernmost part of Italy, has at least four tourist-related airports, sited between the eastern and western coast, separated from each other by a vast territory without efficient transport links and suffering from many diverse environmental problems. Utilizing a desk search methodology based on GIS software, this paper discusses the impact upon the regional development of the tourist traffic of the Trapani Airport situated in the westernmost part of Sicily. Ultimately it analyzes the critical role of connectivity and accessibility in the development of the area and tourism, seeking a maximum involvement of stakeholders. The recent growth of low-cost carriers have had a definite impact on the economic growth of the entire territory, where those choices could determine the life or the death of firms and, inevitably, their annual incomes. Tourism and connectivity are strictly related, thus showing deficiencies of the area in terms of accessibility, as well as the trade-offs between the different government (central and local) investment policies and the specific benefits emerging from the airport in the regional mobility.</p> Enrique Calderon, Paolo Ventura, Alessandro Massaro ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6298 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Reviews Pages: The Times They are A-Changin’ 3(2019) http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6528 <p>Starting from the relationship between urban planning and mobility management, TeMA has gradually expanded the view of the covered topics, always remaining in the groove of rigorous scientific in-depth analysis. During the last two years a particular attention has been paid on the Smart Cities theme and on the different meanings that come with it. The last section of the journal is formed by the Review Pages. They have different aims: to inform on the problems, trends and evolutionary processes; to investigate on the paths by highlighting the advanced relationships among apparently distant disciplinary fields; to explore the interaction’s areas, experiences and potential applications; to underline interactions, disciplinary developments but also, if present, defeats and setbacks. Inside the journal the Review Pages have the task of stimulating as much as possible the circulation of ideas and the discovery of new points of view. For this reason, the section is founded on a series of basic’s references, required for the identification of new and more advanced interactions. These references are the research, the planning acts, the actions and the applications, analysed and investigated both for their ability to give a systematic response to questions concerning the urban and territorial planning, and for their attention to aspects such as the environmental sustainability and the innovation in the practices. For this purpose, the Review Pages are formed by five sections (Web Resources; Books; Laws; Urban Practices; News and Events), each of which examines a specific aspect of the broader information storage of interest for TeMA.</p> Gennaro Angiello, Federica Gaglione, Carmen Guida, Rosa Morosini, Andrea Tulisi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.tema.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6528 Thu, 19 Dec 2019 00:00:00 +0000
