One of the tools that is used during the Vienna workshop is spatial design, which covers the spatial dimension. The discipline covers multiple scales, from the local level to the regional (Daily Urban System) level and the corridor level. The interrelationship between these three levels not only addressed by spatial design but also by the use of ‘mapping’.
Mapping is an essential tool for working through the three different scale levels (zooming in and zooming out) and for analysing the interrelations between the scales. Not only to collect information in a visual attractive and comprehensive way, but also to discuss challenges related to different policy sectors. On maps, the spatial context and the effect of occurring and important issues and challenges can be appointed during a discussion and workshop. In this way the effects on different scale levels can be made transparent in the way they are connected with each other.
