    Isaacs, John P.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Blackwood, David J.; Falconer, Ruth E. (International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, 2011-01)
    Sustainable urban planning decisions must not only consider the physical structure of the urban development but the economic, social and environmental factors. Due to the prolonged times scales of major urban development ...
  • Increasing discrimination in multi-criteria analysis 

    Barannik, Valeriy; Blackwood, David J.; Falconer, Ruth E. (Glasgow Caledonian University, 2007-08)
    Multi criteria methods for supporting decision-making procedures are widely used in sustainability assessment. One of the most important steps in decision-making procedures is the evaluation of policy options or alternatives ...
  • Indicator modelling and interactive visualisation for urban sustainability assessment 

    Falconer, Ruth E.; Isaacs, John P.; Gilmour, Daniel J.; Blackwood, David J. (Engineering Science Reference, 2015-02)
    This chapter presents a novel framework for the integration of the principles of sustainable development within the urban design processes. The framework recognises that decision making for sustainable urban planning is a ...
  • Information visualization and the arts-science-social science interface 

    Bown, James L.; Fee, Kenneth; Sampson, Adam T.; Shovman, Mark; Falconer, Ruth E.; Goltsov, Alexey; Issacs, John P.; Robertson, Paul; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Szymkowiak, Andrea (ACM, 2010)

    Falconer, Ruth E.; Bown, James L.; White, Nia A.; Crawford, John W. (Elsevier, 2011-02)
    The fungi comprise a separate kingdom of life and epitomise the indeterminate growth form. Very little is known about the factors that influence the nature of fungal diversity and the link between individual behaviour and ...
