Space Syntax Analysis of Kaunas: Some Methodological Aspects

Kestutis Zaleckis, Irina Matijošaitienė

Abstract


Space syntax analysis is a well known method. Despite the fact of its wide usage some improvements could be offered. While preparing axial map of Kaunas it was noted that one single axial map cannot be used for evaluation of global and local integration if the correct results are expected. The possibility to use different maps for evaluation of global and local integration in Kaunas is discussed in the article. Additional arguments for usage of the concept of continuity lines are presented. Offer to not limit the axial map of the city to formal administrative border of the municipality is explained.
