essential for the living in groups of people and development of civilizations
around the world, where ecological environment had been created.
In Eco Project, various eco systems contained within the ground will
be analyzed, focusing on Tokyo, Berlin, Bangkok, Paris and other
representative cities of the world. Moreover, the ground water character,
characteristics of spring water will be clarified along with information
of geographical features and thereby water cycles or water resources
formed by topography and features will be illustrated. There will
be a need to analyze huge spaces spreading between the air and soil
through micro-meteorological phenomena. It is also needed to consider
objectively how the local weather system or climate is connected
with human, the flora and fauna, for the understanding of urban ecosystem.
Furthermore, temperature, humidity, radiation, and wind velocity
in living environments will be measured, by which their strong ties
with human, buildings, cities or regions will be made clear.
Based on these environmental and geographic outcomes, urban waterfront spaces
will be illustrated from the viewpoint of engineering and numeric information
through cartographic information science, along with the analysis of spatial
structure and historical information of waterfront spaces. Through these steps,
urban waterfront spaces will be comprehensively considered from the ecological
