About the Book
The growth of mega cities has been particularly dramatic across parts of Asia. The need for quality living space coupled with the increasing density of infrastructural development poses unprecedented challenges and opportunities for the geo-industry. Effective application of innovative ground technology including information technology is needed to:
• Propel productivity in the geo-industry;
• Respond to more complex technical challenges in the development of underground space;
• Support increasing social demand for sustainable and responsible development - green technology being one of the recent topical examples.

This book contains 58 papers from 17 countries (Australia, Austria, China, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea,Malaysia, Portugal, Kazakhstan, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States) including 8 keynote papers and 7 invited papers from world renowned experts. It aims to address the recent advances in ground technology and geo-information systems.

This book covers the wide range of topics include:
• Urban Geo-Informatics
• Innovative Construction Methods
• New Design Method and New Test Technology
• Numerical Methods for Geo-Engineering
• Data Acquisition and Monitoring
• Database and Data Mining
• Case Studies with Innovative Technology
• Geo-Modelling and Geo-Informatics
• Emerging Techniques in Information Technology
