Resulting from a CPDT Wallonia research project on the densification of the Walloon urbanized fabrics, this article presents a typology of those fabrics. The development of this typology is the fruit of an experimental method of systematic morphological identification. The information that has been used comes from IT databases and is easy to handle in conjunction with a GeographicalInformation System ( GIS ). The resulting modeling, tested on the Commune of Ath, allows fast chrono-typological classification, roll-out of the method to the whole of Wallonia and comparisons and cross-references with other mapped data.

This approach is oriented towards the question of residential densities but could be adapted to other types of spatial analyses.
