Heatmap of a Public Place

I have, in a group of four students at Roskilde University created a programme for generating a heatmap of a public space in order to create an analysis of the use of the space.

This is a used method in urban renewal and in recreation practises. The heatmap improves a good analysis.

The heatmap method is fairly simple. We extrude every pixel from the one picture in a movie to another in the next picture looking at the differences in pixels – the movement. There by we draw a heat map letting us know, where there are most traffic and rhythms in the captured area. This video shows the tree heatmap examples the method generates and the analysis is revolving about:
