The CNRS thematic school “See or being seen… or not 2017” takes place from 23rd to 27th october 2017. This thematic school tackles the topic of visibility analysis dedicated to the understanding of urban morphology. Visibility analysis is considered in all its forms, such as ground and sky view analysis, detection of salient features and solar insolation simulation. These analysis may be automatized or manual, processed in situ or in a virtual universe.

The aims of this event is to gather researchers and practitioners from different communities (architecture, geomatics, geography, computer sciences) in order to exchange about proposed methods from these domains and to discuss about a common topic. For the support of the discussions, the different methodologies presented during the week will be processed on a common study zone on which a group work will be lead about a urban planning issue.

The CNRS thematic school “See or being seen… or not 2017” is supported by INSHS and INS2I CNRS institutes, UMR AAU, MAGIS Research Group, LIRIS laboratory, COGIT laboratory, and labex IMU labex.

Pratical information:
