Fractal analysis and perception of visual quality in everyday street vistas
AbstractFractal analysis offers potential as a tool for evaluating the visual qualities of street vistas. In this paper we outline the concept of fractal dimension as a measure of texture in images of built form and describe a methodology for comparing fractal dimension with perceptions of visual quality in street vistas. We find that a positive relationship exists between levels of fractal dimension and judgments of visual quality in street vistas and outline the applications that this relationship may have.
