Conception of a GIS platform to simulate urban densification based on the analysis of topographic data

Abstract : The aim of our research is to analyze the evolution of urbanization and to simulate it on specific areas. We focus on the evolution between 1950 and now. We analyse the densification by means of comparing temporal topographic data bases created from existing topographic data base and maps and photo from 1950. In this paper we present how a simulation works - which input data are used, which functions are used to densify the space and how the simulation works, is tuned and run - the densification method for each urban block illustrated with results, the method used during the project to build the required knowledge for simulation and we conclude and present the main research perspectives. The methods are implemented on a dedicated open source software named GeOpenSim.
