Book Description:
The rational use of energy resources is the only way to reduce the environmental impact of human activities. Cities are thermodynamic systems that must be organized by relating variable energy demand to minimize entropy production. Here a methodology to analyze energy needs of buildings by a GIS (Geographic Information System) is presented. Spatial analysis techniques were used to connect descriptive data of different plant typologies to the relevant buildings, even when this information was not provided by the original data base.
