Abstract

The quantification of urban sprawl is a prerequisite to identify the relationship between urban sprawl and its impacts in terms of land use. This paper aims to strengthen the understanding of the spatial and temporal dynamics of urban form, starting from a frequently available database to the public entities. The developed methodology provides the breakdown of the urban pattern in spatial areas characterized by a different degree of density and the analysis of morphological changes that these areas suffer over time.
