We have launched a new project on monitoring urbanizing China with emerging new data. The project has been funded by two ministries in China, MOHURD and NDRC.

 

"The traditional index system of habitat environment monitoring and its calculation methods are insufficient in terms of updating speed and accuracy, which are difficult to meet the growing demand for refined management. The emergence of new data and new methods has brought opportunities for the updating of habitat environment monitoring index system. This project firstly presents an objective analysis of the supportiveness of China habitat environment monitoring based on a new data environment, followed by proposing a method for constructing the indicator system for monitoring built environment under the new data environment. "
