According to UN estimates, approximately nearly half of the world's population now lives in cities and that figure is expected to rise to almost 70% by 2050. Cities now account for around 70% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, and this percentage is predicted to rise in the near future as a result of projected increases in global urbanization patterns. It is widely acknowledged that irrational urban planning and design can increase emissions while also exacerbating threats and risks, resulting in a slew of environmental issues such as urban heat islands, air pollution, flooding, amongst other  issues, as well as environmental, social, and economic losses. Therefore, these concerns must be addressed promptly in order to cope up with these rising difficulties and make urban environments safer for residents.

With the advancement of remote sensing technology and the use of current remote observation systems, urban data science, remote sensing, and artificial intelligence (AI), modeling and quantifying emergent difficulties in urban regions and urban systems have become easy. They aid in the quantitative analysis of urban shape, functions, and human behavior in cities. Harvesting data, developing models, and suggesting new methodologies will be aided by combining urban ecology with new breakthroughs in data science. This book is of great value to a diverse group of academicians, scientists, students, environmentalists, meteorologists, urban planners, remote sensing and GIS experts with a common interest in geospatial sciences within the earth environmental sciences, as well as  human and social sciences.



Dr. Atiqur Rahman is Professor of Geography at Dept. of Geography, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia. He is Alumnus of Aligarh Muslim University Aligarh. He completed B.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc., M.Phil., and Ph.D. from AMU, Aligarh. His research interest is urban environmental management, water resources, and use of remote sensing satellite data, GIS, and GPS. He was Post-doctoral Fellow (PDF) at UFZ-Centre for Environmental Research, Leipzig, Germany (1999). He was Co-PI of Indo-Germany DST-DAAD major project. He is Recipient of prestigious Young Scientist Project Grant Award (2001-2004) from Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.

He has widely traveled to various countries in Europe, Africa, and USA. Prof. Rahman is among the top 2% Global Elite Scientists in a study by University of Stanford, USA, published in the journal PLOS Biology in 2020 and 2021.
Dr. Sen Roy's is Professor at the Department of Geography and Sustainable Development, University of Miami, USA. Her research and teaching interests center on climatology, spatial analysis, and crime patterns. Her work focuses on spatio-temporal patterns of climate processes across various regions, including the Indian subcontinent, South Africa, China, and USA, using advanced geo-statistical techniques to analyze trends in climatic variables. In addition, she has recently started working on crime patterns in south Florida. Her research projects include: impacts of global teleconnections on the summer precipitation in India; trends in the occurrence of extreme precipitation events in India; diurnal patterns in the timing of winter precipitation in the United States; impacts of cloud cover on diurnal temperature ranges; impacts of green Revolution induced land use changes on air temperatures and precipitation in India; trends in daily and hourly extreme precipitation and temperatures in India and South Africa; spatial characteristics of Urban Heat Island (UHI) and air pollution in Delhi, Hong Kong, and Beijing; spatial patterns of real estate values in the context of sea level rise in the City of Miami Beach; spatial analysis of traffic accidents and crime in Miami metropolitan area. Her research has been published in The International Journal of Climatology, Physical Geography, Monthly Weather Review, Geophysical Research Letters, and Journal of Geophysical Research, Weather and Climate Extremes, British Journal of Criminology, European Journal of Criminal Policy and Research, The Professional Geographer, and Applied Geography.
