While cities grow horizontally over natural areas, they also grow vertically with high-rise construction in time. The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) is defined as the ratio of the amount of construction area on a parcel to the parcel area. FAR is one of the essential indicators for detecting and measuring 3D (three-dimensional) change. The amount and trends of change differ for each urban settlement and on its internal dynamics.
