The “Space Syntax Toolkit” is a QGIS plugin offering user friendly space syntax analysis workflows in a GIS environment. It provides a front-end for the depthmapX software within QGIS, for seamless spatial network analysis. Furthermore, it includes tools for urban data management and analysis, namely land use, entrances, frontages, pedestrian movement, road centre lines, and service areas.
Originally developed by Jorge Gil at the Space Syntax Laboratory, The Bartlett, UCL, the plugin includes contributions from:
- Space Syntax Limited - Ioanna Kovolou, Abhimanyu Acharya, Stephen Law, Laurens Versluis
The plug-in can be installed from the QGIS Plugins Manager, and updates become automatically available once submitted to the QGIS plugins repository.
- QGIS (2.14 or above) - http://www.qgis.org/en/site/
