Grouping by structure types

In Map Urban Structure (06.07), similar area types are grouped into 16 overarching structure types, as well as body of water (which cannot be assigned a "classic" structure type):


Tab. 8: Grouping of area types to structure types

[Table is also available as Excel-File (MS-Excel is required).]

The representation of the structure types is concentrated, even more than that for the area types, on areas with primarily residential use. The 17 differentiated area types with primarily residential use are grouped into 11 structure types with such use, while the other 34 area types (not including body of water) with other uses are grouped into the five remaining structure types.

The 11 structure types with primarily residential use our differentiated on the basis of the structure of their buildings and open spaces, and of their building age.

This differentiated perspective has repeatedly proven to be effective. For example, the urban structure mapping system was taken as a secondary data source for the overall city biotope mapping process, and the description of the structure types on the basis of the structures of the buildings and free spaces has largely been adopted for the descriptions of the biotopes in built-up areas (see also: Berlin's biotope type list (German only)).
