This is an analytical tool based on space syntax theory for urban morphological analysis. Through the implementation, we have successfully brought urban morphological analysis capability to GIS users. Incorporating space syntax to GIS promotes both GIS and urban morphology research. It enhances GIS functionality in spatial analysis into the domain of urban morphological analysis. On the other hand, GIS provides rich georeferenced data, spatial analysis and visualisation capability for urban morphology research.
