ROLES OF PEDESTRIAN WAYS IN SPATIAL NETWORK TO CREATE CITY IMAGE – THE CASE OF TUNJUNGAN SURABAYA

Here is my new paper for International Seminar on Partnership for Sustainable Housing and Urban Development, will be held this week (15-16 October 2015) in Mercure Grand Mirama Hotel Surabaya. The Seminar is arranged by Regional Center for Community Empowerment on Housing and Urban Development and Research Institute for Housing and Human Settlements, Ministry of Public Works and Housing, Indonesia.

ABSTRACT: Pedestrian way is one important element in urban planning. It builds spatial network which interconnect spaces in the city. The pedestrian path has important roles which support green open space network. Network of pedestrian ways are in some cases abandoned and disregard its importance as compared to other open space determined as public space or plaza. In many cities of developing countries, pedestrian way is also malfunctioned as parking space, selling area, not even people-friendly at all. From several case studies of people friendly pedestrian in cities, this study would like to identify roles of pedestrian way in building character of city image. To sustain, the character of people friendly-pedestrian has to be included when planning pedestrian as connecting space network in the city. The results are important to give recommendations of how to implement people friendly pedestrian which serves its function, but is also convenient and builds character of the city image.

KEYWORDS: Pedestrian, network, open space, people-friendly, city image

Lively Riverfront Space for Community: Challenges for Kali Mas River Redevelopment Plan of Surabaya

My second published paper, presented in 1st Planocosmo International Conference, ITB Bandung-Indonesia, 8 Oktober 2012.

Authors: Shirleyana and Astri Anindya Sari

Abstract

One of natural potential and assets for a city is river area. Its existence could stimulate the quality of life of a city. Many big cities in Indonesia are located in riverside areas, include Surabaya. The roles of river in Surabaya for community have been evolved throughout times, from transportation support into public space. This demonstrated the significance of river to urban development in Surabaya. Realizing its potentials, the Local Government of Surabaya has prepared the Kalimas River Redevelopment Plan as one strategy in Surabaya Vision Plan 2005-2025.

The Kalimas River Redevelopment Plan is designed to revitalize and to bring forth the lively riverside area. Some parts along the river have been transformed to serve as a community public space. However, the lively public space in riverfront could not take place.

Learning from the several case studies of lively riverfront development, this paper attempts to study how to optimize and implement the river redevelopment and create lively and attractive riverfront zone for community who longs for a place for interaction.

USING GIS TOOLS FOR IDENTIFYING NEW FAMILY PLANNING CLINICS BASED ON SOCIAL AND ACCESSIBILITY FACTORS : THE CASE OF CENTRAL JAVA, INDONESIA

My first publicly published paper in: Jurnal Ilmiah Ilmu Komputer UPH (Computer Science Journal of Pelita Harapan University) Vol. 9 No. 1 September 2012 ISSN 1412- 9523

Authors: Shirleyana, Nirajan Dhakal, Ma.Besilda Arevalo

Abstract

Rapid population growth in the world results to scarcity in resources and even further induces social problems. There is much experience of managing the reproductive health problems by reducing fertility, but it is necessary to invest in health, family planning and education. The Government of Indonesia has introduced Family Planning Program to reduce the Total Fertility Rate and succeed to reduce birth rates.

 This study reviews methods and tools of spatial and statistical analytical in Geographical Information Systems (GIS).  It also identifies wide range of tools ranging from simple buffer/overlay functions to spatial query functions.

This study also identifies the social and accessibility factor affecting identification of new Family Planning Clinics (FPCs): poverty, education, the number of FPCs, and the available road network. Implementation within GIS of spatial analytical tools is found suitable to locate the targeted area for further implementation of Family Planning Programs.

Keyword: GIS, spatial analysis, family planning.
