The contemporary image-making process offers the designer the opportunity to transform the agency of the image from passive consumption to active production. This paper will reveal, through the deliberate application of open-source software, ImageJ, to both webcam and video footage, that image-based data can be extracted to inform design image-making. Through a series of procedures that reapply the criteria of medical imaging software to the city image, it will be shown this software can provide both an index of the city's performance and a palette of new generative formal techniques that profoundly influence our perception and experience of urban space.
