Un nuevo instrumento para la identificación de patrones de ocupación espacial

Este trabajo explora las potencialidades de la metodología observacional sistemática y los instrumentos basados en formatos de campo, aplicados al estudio de los procesos de apropiación espacial. Se presenta un instrumento de observación que permite el registro de un conjunto de variables coocurrentes relativas a distintos niveles de respuesta (tipos de usuarios, actividades y características ambientales), que ha sido utilizado en un análisis exploratorio de los patrones de ocupación de una plaza en Barcelona. El análisis secuencial realizado revela patrones de uso diferenciados en distintas zonas del espacio y momentos del día. Este tipo de estrategias ofrecen nuevas oportunidades para la descripción de patrones de ocupación espacial.

A new instrument to identify spatial occupancy patterns. This paper explores the potential of systematic observational methodologies and field format instruments for the analysis of spatial appropriation processes. We present an observational instrument that facilitates the registration of a number of co-ocurrent variables related to different levels of responses (types of users, activities and environmental variables), which was used in an exploratory analysis of occupancy patterns in a public square in Barcelona. A sequential analysis revealed distinct patterns of use in different areas within the space, and at different moments during the day. These strategies offer important new opportunities to describe spatial occupancy patterns.
