Sustainable development influences today's urban planners. Some planners argue that our modern lifestyle uses too many natural resources, pollutes ecosystems, creates urban heat islands and causes climate change. How can we monitor our activities? In what way can we provide housing for the growing population without polluting water and soil? Monitoring the impact of our activities is therefore of utmost importance.
