2018 // Delft, Netherlands
The article details how newly computed analyses, such as Shannon-Wiener Index of complexity of activities as well as gravity and centrality indexes, can be implemented to study the experiential qualities of public spaces and development opportunities of urban spaces and neighborhoods. The proposed method is tested in the city of Turku in Finland, where an interactive interface called Turku Open Platform is used by developers and stakeholders, integrating these analytics to decision- making and public discussions.
