The video shows a tool that links the modelling process (drawing of floor plans) and visibility analysis (isovists and isovist-fields). In order to receive immediate analytical feedback to changes made to the drawing analysis calculations have to be conducted at high speed. The tools demonstrates how the calculation of isovists or isovist-fields can be accelerated by using the graphical processing unit (GPU).
