On the morphological composition of cities and how to measure it
Identification and description of morphological patterns forming cities are becoming easier due to expansion of urban open data and advancements of the related software. This talk presents current developments of methods of morphological analysis based on open data, leading to a classification of distinct types of urban form patterns.
