Ground mapping

Character and context, supplementary planning guidance, published by the Mayor of London in June 2014, defines ground mapping as: ‘A device by which the relationship of the built form to open space and hence urban grain and permeability can be clearly shown by reversed out/silhouette mapping. Also known as Nolli Mapping after Giambattista Nolli who devised the technique.’
