About Jasper van Vliet

Jasper van Vliet is an Associate Professor in Land Use and Urban Development. In his research he aims to better understand land use change and urban development processes and their consequences at scales ranging from local to global.


The multi-scale approach underlying his research builds on a range of methodological approaches, including case studies, systematic reviews, spatial analysis, and land use modelling.

Ongoing work is mainly directed towards a better (spatial) characterization of urban land, for example in terms of 3D building structure, urban land use activities, and social and economic development.

To that effect he builds on earth observation data, spatial analyses, machine learning, and statistical databases.
