The transactional perspective is very attractive in order to analyze and intervene in public space on neighborhood scale. However, language and methodological differences between the various disciplines involved make it quite complex. In this article we present a multi-method qualitative strategy of analysis, integrating various results graphically, in an attempt to bring together the graphic and textual languages that dominate single-discipline approaches of public space. Diverse techniques were triangulated and underwent the same analytical process (Grounded Theory), supported by Atlas / ti and Arcgis software. Using this techniques it was possible to link graphic aspects (maps and images) with comments from researchers and biographical accounts of the participants. So, specific physical spaces were associated with the development and construction of spatial meanings and uses.
