summary How does the user’s view get into the endoscope? The endoscopical picture makes no difference between centralized perspective parts and the perception in the borderzones of the eyes’ view. The utilization of endoscopical pictures shows that we learned this way of viewing in renaissance. The user’s view is obtained by everyday experiences:

• It accounts for the extension of the own body in motion. Everything happening in the borderzones of the eyes’ view is perceived with reduced attention and depth of focus; • The user’s movement is only guided by the user’s view. The other senses are added; • In habitual surroundings the user’s view sorts out according to the significance of objects.

In this contribution these aspects are demonstrated in examples of simulating the utilization process in urban space. According to our (three year-short) experience with endoscopical simulation there are at least three different manors of view, which we are trying to make visible with the available hardware: a.) architect’s or planner’s view, b.) owner’s view and c.) user’s view.
