Visibility analysis along with Geographical Information Systems has been constantly explored and facilitate the process of studying city structure and urban development, especially in high-rise city models, to prevent obstructions of the urban elements, as well as to create a pleasant and well-function environment for residents. Being able to apply such research and use the relevant tools, led in the implementation of a visibility assessment in two different case studies. Hence, this study focuses on the visual sense of the socio-spatial context of urban planning in two neighborhoods, Carlsberg in Copenhagen and Wijnhaven in Rotterdam.

Moreover, the research examines and applies different geoinformation techniques that can interpret the visual socio-spatial relationship based on the existing literature and available tools. The analysis of the study is performed with the use of five Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), density, scale, openness, high-rise buildings intensity and views to nature landscape from residential buildings. Additionally, the results were formed into a classification system to better comprehend the KPIs measurements as well as to address the comparison between the two case studies.

Finally, the project concludes with the discussion, conclusion and future development. The discussion presents the outcome of the study based on the research objectives, emphasizing on the obstacles and data limitations faced during the process. The conclusion summarises the work this thesis has implement, while future development the possible next steps of such research. Moreover, it introduces the additional processes that can carry out, in the direction of the evaluation of the results, along with accuracy improvement, and the scale of the analysis so to further strengthen the process as a part of the urban planning development.
