Space Syntax – Realtime Global Features (Mean Distance, Visibility Integration, …)

This post is about two, respectively four, new global Space Syntax Measure I have worked on recently. Distance, Mean Distance Turns, Mean Turns (aka. Visual Step Depth, Visibility…

Space Syntax – Isovists

  This is a quick extension to the previous post. The isovists are computed in realtime by sampling a huge mount of directions in parallel at each location…

Space Syntax – Realtime Local Features (Isovist, Axis, Radials, …)

  A while ago I experimented with 3D SpaceSyntax and efficient computation of 3D isovists and other local properties like signed distance volume voxels, etc… . It was…

Spatial Analysis in 3D – Space Syntax

  Space Syntax dates back to the 70’s and is used for analysing connectivity, opennes, visibility and flow of spatial configurations. Popular applications are e.g. floor-plans of museums,…
