Momepy is a project allowing advanced quantitative analysis of urban morphology. Embracing principles of Urban Morphometrics (Dibble, 2017), this toolkit aims to provide tools for the development of complex frameworks for a description of urban structures.
momepy stands for Morphological Measuring in Python
Momepy is a result of ongoing research of Urban Design Studies Unit (UDSU) supported by the Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation as a part of “The Urban Form Resilience Project” in partnership with University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, UK.
Comments, suggestions, feedback, and contributions, as well as bug reports, are very welcome.
