title Digital approaches for evaluating urban indicators: an application of CityMetrics for analysis of two neighborhoods in Juiz de Fora, Brazil
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 324-330
summary This paper describes the application of CityMetrics, a system that articulates computational resources to analyze and optimize the performance of urban configurations. In this context, some indicators (and algorithms) such as Physical and Topological proximity, Spacematrix and Mixed-Use Index were used for analysis, optimization and comparison of two neighborhoods in the city of Juiz de Fora, Brazil. The objective of this research is to verify the possibilities of using computational tools to analyze and propose modifications in neighborhoods and cities, contributing to the decision making in the urban context.
