Urban exploration is, essentially, the activity exploring parts of the urban landscape that are not normally seen. Practitioners of urban exploration often tend to be photography buffs, and frequently capture cool pictures that would otherwise not be taken.

This page is a rallying point for Splatt'ers who are fans of / practitioners of / interested in Urbex.

A further elaboration on Urbex From Wikipedia:

Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex or UE) is the examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. Urban exploration is also commonly referred to as infiltration, although some people consider infiltration to be more closely associated with the exploration of active or inhabited sites. It may also be referred to as "draining" (when exploring drains) "urban spelunking", "urban caving", or "building hacking".

The nature of this activity presents various risks, including both physical danger and the possibility of arrest and punishment. Many, but not all, of the activities associated with urban exploration could be considered trespassing or other violations of local or regional laws, including—but not limited to—invasion of privacy and certain broadly-interpreted anti-terrorism laws.

NOTE: Splatspaces does not condone illegal activity. Splatspace per-se does not formally sponsor an "urbex group" and this wiki-page is simply an informational resource for members (or members of the public) who happen to share this interest. Nothing said on this page should be taken to construe any sanction, endorsement, or promotion of any illegal activity by Splatspace.
