The space-time cube as an effective way of representing and analysing the streetscape along a pedestrian route in an urban environment

Abstract : The graphical representation of a complex polygonal object, such as an isovist field (i.e. a 2D isovist in its evolution over time along a pedestrian path in an urban environment) is a hard research issue that was stated in the late 1970s by Benedikt . The generalized space-time cube from Bach and al. is a conceptual framework allowing to propose innovative implementations for the analysis and the display of this complex object. The purpose of this article is to situate, within this formal framework, all the graphical representation solutions that have already been developed for isovist fields. It also aims to identify the problems raised by each of these solutions (spatial anchoring, arbitrary sampling, etc.) and to propose related solutions.
