prclz (pronounced "parcelize") is a library for the analysis of the topology and form of urban infrastructure. this library was used to analyze data for the Million Neighborhoods Map project.
- generating vectors for street blocks in a neighborhood using street network information from OpenStreetMap
- creating parcels/cadastral maps for building footprints and other land use features within each block
- calculating structural and areal features (k-complexity of access graph, percentage of land used by buildings, etc) at the block and neighborhood level
- determining optimal-cost, universal-access incremental road networks for a given locale
for how to use the package, please see the documentation
