Sample text

The pre-conditions with respect to the resources, people and institutional framework needed to repeat and expand the data presented in this book for the millenium year and further into the future, are very difficult indeed to reproduce. Most, however, who are intimately concerned with urban data and draw on it for technical analyses and policy directions, would probably agree that the effort represented in this book is worthy of continuation. It therefore largely remains to be seen whether the right environment and framework can be established for this activity to have a definite and secure future.

Jeff Kenworthy supervised all this latter work and was involved in the day-to-day follow-up, compilation, checking and cross-checking of the data for validity. Felix Laube's mapping and graphic design skills have also considerably enhanced this version of the book and the way data are presented. Critical to the whole approach to data collection in this book has been the issue of developing the skills of those involved in the data gathering and assembly. The experience gained in the previous round of work over 7 years through the 1980s is not easily or quickly conveyed to people just starting out.

Standardised data are represented by an extensive array of factors such as urban density, per capita car and transit use figures, per capita energy use, CBD parking supply per 1000 CBD jobs and so on. In this case, the data presentations are a standard two pages per city, except for the developing Asian cities where a third page of data is provided which gives further detail on the private transportation parameters. This extra data reveals specific details about motor cycles, taxis and taxi-like paratransit modes in these cities.
