Understanding urban expansion will provide good knowledge for urban planning and policy making in balancing urban economic development and natural resource protection.
According to available data, the urban expansion in Praia between 1969 and 2015 is observed in four phases (1969–1993, 1993–2003, 2003–2010, and 2010–2015). We integrate various data sources, using an available method to coordinate and calibrate map data with different scales and forms into a consistent dataset and then introduces some improvements in the delineation of urban areas. With this data, the driving forces in each phase are explored using regression analysis with 21 explanatory variables. In this secti section, we will present a published paper in the journal Sustainability.
