Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This study utilizes digital map data for the 6/5 and aims to develop a model that integrates railways with the street and road network to analyze citywide spatial configuration by the space syntax model. Combining street data and railway data, we present a spatial analysis method that considers the reality of travel in urban areas: multi-modal travel. Proposed method enables us to analyze the space syntax of different modes by "travel time." We analyzed the spatial configuration by three characteristics: accessible number of places, mean travel time, and betweenness. For number of accessible places and length of mean access time, characteristics of the areas in Tokyo were revealed and a certain level of possibility of analysis was confirmed.
