The Management of Parameters for the Design of Responsive Map

  • Cecilia Maria Bolognesi


The research deals with the management of data as parameters for the knowledge and design of towns. As environmental data we mean what the human being can offer in terms of habits, different age and sex, race and many others within the architecture of a town as a software in a hardware. The desire to represent social data related to human behavior of the inhabitants is an ancient wish. The paper is a short overview on the evolution of the collections of data and its representation in maps more and more complex. Nowadays territorial data bases are more often linked to time variables and need complex platforms to be described. Today complex software allow us to manage geolocalized datasheet where you can create synthetic but complex maps including different sort of dates. These maps can give us a direction of the state of the town but also a direction for a smart design and development. This papers show us an ancient case, some contemporary researches, an actual case in Milano.
