Geographical: The Real SimCity

By July 18, 2008 One Comment

This months issue of Geographical includes a feature whereby Olivia Edward talks to the British urban geographers (including us) who are immersing themselves in virtual cities to gain a greater insight into the workings of our real-life conurbations.

The article is based around screenshots and interviews from ourselves as well as Mark Birkin from the University of Leeds.

We haven’t had chance to get hold of a copy yet but it should be available in all good newsagents, or online.


Andy is Professor of Digital Urban Systems at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at University College London.
