Based on the best applied research presented at the 18th meeting of the International Association of People-Environment Studies, IAPS18 held in Vienna, this volume concentrates on theories and methods in planning and monitoring, environmental, health and social impact assessment, post-occupancy evaluations (POEs), computer modelling and various simulation tools. It is thus a fascinating and up-to-date review for researchers, professional practitioners, and policy makers.
