Numerous systems have been developed to display large collections of data for urban contexts; however, most have focused on layering of single dimensions of data and manual calculations to understand relationships within the urban environment. Furthermore, these systems often limit the userâs perspectives on the data, thereby diminishing the userâs spatial(More)

" (Social) space is a (social) product [...] the space thus produced also serves as a tool of thought and of action. " 1 Henri LeLefebvre It is plausible to consider the city using two distinct lenses, gazing alternatively at form and content. For a city, form is essentially spatial consisting of the disposition of objects across the landscape, both natural(More)
Urban environments require cognitive abilities focused on both spatial overview and detailed understanding of uses and places. These abilities are distinct but overlap and reinforce each other. Our work quantitatively and qualitatively measures the effects on a user's overall understanding of the environment after navigating with either a GPS or a road map(More)
Historically, the city represents not just a collection of buildings, but also the concrete cosmology of the world. The importance of geometry in this context is that one can be assured that one's understanding of the form of the city will correspond to meaning. It is this reading that is the canonical visualization method of the city form. But contemporary(More)
