A pre-processed spatial network model of Great Britain, published as an open dataset.


Produced as part of the Company’s mission to disseminate the Space Syntax approach in ways that are affordable and accessible, the OpenMapping project provides data on two key ‘spatial accessibility’ measures commonly used in research and professional practice:

Choice – the likelihood that movement will pass through any particular street

Integration – the relative ease with which any location can be moved to from all other locations.

These measures are calculated at three spatial scales:

2km – helpful when assessing the walkability of an area

10km – often used to assess vehicle movement patterns

100km – a scale that typically reveals regional inequalities.
