We study three 1 mile x 1 mile areas in Atlanta to establish correlations between street configuration and densities of pedestrian movement. Two kinds of analysis are used: first, standard syntactic analysis applied to axial maps drawn to cover surrounding areas large enough so that Radius 3 Integration values assigned to observation spaces suffer no edge effects; second, new techniques of analysis that can be applied to standard GIS representations of street center-lines. It is shown that the new measures post-dict movement densities as well as the standard syntactic measures.
