One of the difficulties encountered in the evaluation of urban landscape for the purposes of architectural projects, urbanization projects, projects for the control of urban landscapes and highways has been that of finding a methodology that deals not just with quantitative data, but also with qualitative data. The evolution of General Cinematic Scenography technology applied to City Planning has pointed to some practical results which go beyond the methodologies usually employed in work of this nature. The surveys and inventories of urban landscape already carried out use restitutions of a mnemonic order expressed in sketches, drawings, photographs, films, enquiries with open or closed questionnaires, all on variable bases, therefore not allowing a space-time analysis of all the recorded details. General Cinematic Scenography applied to City Planning allows for the solution of some of the above difficulties. The new programs in non-linear electronic editing have come to create a new possibility for controlling the length of duration of the filming compatible between the cinematographic and videographic registers of large stretches of urban landscape or of highways for the purposes of city planning and landscaping. The present project proposes a revision and fine-tuning of the experiment already carried out and the technical working up of an application. (AU)
