EL INVALORABLE APORTE DEL PIXEL AL ANÁLISIS DINÁMICO URBANO (The Invaluable Contribution of the Pixel to the Urban Dynamic Analysis)
SIGraDi biobio2001 - [Proceedings of the 5th Iberoamerican Congress of Digital Graphics / ISBN 956-7813-12-4] Concepcion (Chile) 21-23 november 2001, pp. 328-330
Cities are growing out of control and with unforeseen complexity, with a lavish energy waste and an increasing life-quality loss. A possible approach to cope with these difficulties is the use of Urban Dynamic Analysis, a multidisciplinary body of knowledge allowing the holistic study of time-relationships between city structures and their related distinctive functions. A set of computer-aided tools is being developed following these guidelines. They are intended for the assessment of the behaviour of morphological layouts as regards to energy saving. Three such tools are described, using different pixel-counting approaches in order to simplify and facilitate their use.
