This work is framed within the research line focused on the analysis of the urban morphology and their evolution. The methodology includes the scanning of the settlement fabric in built-up areas characterized by a different density level and the analysis of their possible morphologic evolution. Local density measurements have been used in order to trace the frames via kernel density tools. A set of metrics linked to landscape ecology has been used in order to describe the potential dynamics of increase in such areas.

Abstract

This work is framed within the research line focused on the analysis of the urban morphology and their evolution. The methodology includes the scanning of the settlement fabric in built-up areas characterized by a different density level and the analysis of their possible morphologic evolution. Local density measurements have been used in order to trace the frames via kernel density tools. A set of metrics linked to landscape ecology has been used in order to describe the potential dynamics of increase in such areas. The work underlines how the combined use of such spatial analysis techniques implemented in GIS environment can give us an answer to the issue of settlement increase measurement.
