We are delighted to announce the latest release of the open source ‘Space Syntax Toolkit’ during the 11th International Space Syntax Symposium in Lisbon. The project is an ongoing collaboration between Space Syntax Limited and Jorge Gil from UCL.

The Toolkit is an open source QGIS plug-in, which will assist people in undertaking space syntax analysis and research. The Toolkit is accessible on our GitHub repository and the new features in this release include:

Road Centre Line Cleaner
Urban Data Input
Catchment Analyser
Gate Transformer

Space Syntax Limited is committed to supporting the open-source and space syntax community around the world and encourages further development of the Toolkit.

Ioanna Kolovou, Stephen Law and Abhimanyu Acharya from Space Syntax Limited, together with Jorge Gil, ran an interactive workshop during the Space Syntax Symposium where participants learnt how to use the Toolkit’s new features. It was an opportunity to get first-hand insights on methodology that Space Syntax Limited applies in day-to-day practice when analysing urban systems.
