Abstract

Urbino, a city whose historic centre was declared to be part of the UNESCO World Heritage, serves as a case history for the application of innovative research methodologies based on GIS applications in urban contexts. Various phases of research have led to the evolution of a single GIS project that manages the territorial context as well as the geomorphological and historical reconstructions of the evolution of the city from the first Roman settlements to the present day, up to reaching a management of the current urban centre’s layout and of the archaeological peculiarities found in the area. In particular, the analysis and urban management phase is presented. All of the features are organised in the Geodatabase environment by taking a three-dimensional modelling of floorplans with their relative covering and showing in the correct geographical-spatial location also perspectives, in their 3D morphology. The focus of the work is the integrated management of all the peculiarities of the urban elements, from their composition, to their geometric characteristics, from the state of conservation to the interventions for dynamic monitoring based on complete and upgradeable cartography, useful for the enjoyment and enhancement of the urban areas but also in the context of the decision-making and planning.
