Gil, J.A. (author)
This thesis proposes a framework for evaluating the mobility potential and performance of urban areas in the city region, as an instrument to support urban development that contributes positively to regional sustainable mobility objectives. The research takes a quantitative approach, modelling and measuring the characteristics of a city-region...

The sustainable mobility vision for city-regions proposes a more integrated and ‘seamless’ multi-modal public transport system around quality neighborhoods, shifting mobility to soft transportation modes and to public transport at various scales. Existing models of sustainable urban form address this challenge focusing on the location, density...

This study presents a first step in the development of a model that integrates public transport networks with the space syntax axial model, towards a network model that can describe the multi?modal movement structure of a city and study its patterns and flows. It describes the method for building an integrated multimodal network model of the...

The aim of this paper is to develop a method for describing urban patter by means of simple mathematical calculations applicable for urban design. Two approaches were used and combined with one another. The first approach was Stephen Marshall’s method for calculating T-junctions and X-junctions seen in relationship with a cul-de-sac and network...

The aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, it discusses how to analyse entire regions with the help of space syntax. Secondly, it demonstrates how a main route network through and between urban areas can be calculated in Depthmap. For this purpose one can combine angular choice with metrical distance and add various radiuses on top of each other...
