Land Use Mix calculation from OpenStreepMap data

Keyword: Urban sprawl

Functional Description: The software uses Mapzen Metro Extracts to retrieve the OpenStreetMap data of a given region in the PostgreSQL format. Afterwards, a continuous representation of residential and activity land uses is created. Finally, a GIS output containing the degree of land use mixture is calculated by means of using the land uses maps. The implemented approach is documented in the paper "A framework for evaluating urban land use mix from crowd-sourcing data",
