Building activity in large and intermediate cities phase II: spatial analysis of the influence of land and mass transport policies on Bogotá's urban growth between 1992 and 2006.

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project derives from the research project "Building activity in large and intermediate cities phase I: effects of land and mass transport policies in Bogotá" which is currently being developed by Professor Vergel Tovar. The building activity in the city of Bogotá over the last 25 years has undergone changes due to changes in land and housing policies as well as the changes resulting from the crises in the financial system, especially in the late 1990s. Similarly, investments in mass transport through the construction and operation of the BRT type transport system known as Transmilenio have influenced the urban structure of the city. Currently, there is limited knowledge of the effects of the land policies established in the POT and the massive transport investments on the building activity of the city of Bogotá. This research project seeks to develop spatial analysis of the works census - Coordenada Urbana- of the Colombian Chamber of Construction (CAMACOL) in a period of time from 1992 to 2006. The spatial analysis of data (space regression, heat maps and density analysis) seeks to establish the influence of soil and transport policies on the generation of nodes with the greatest building activity in the city and to determine the trends in the time of building activity and urban growth in Bogotá between 1992 and 2006.
