Raster analysis of urban form

Abstract. A new paradigm for investigating the environment consequences of urban texture is proposed. Using raster-based models and software algorithms derived from image processing the authors develop efficient methods of measuring geometric parameters and predicting radiation exchange. The possibilities of generating synthetic urban textures and of integrating cellular automata are explored. Results suggest the possibility of a raster-based urban model to inform planning and design.
