Interaction between compactness and fragmentation in urban shapes

r=0.001. According to these negative correlations, more compact shapes and less fragmented shapes would coincide with more integrated grids. The correlations while significant are nevertheless weak suggesting two possibilities: either urban shapes do not have a strong effect on the syntactic characteristics of urban grids, or the effect is different according to various kinds of grids. The later suggests the need for discovering urban grid types and investigating how different types are affected by urban shapes.

Correlations between shape measures and grid measures for the sample of 50 cities.

Correlations with r>0.500 and probability <0.05 are highlighted and their probability is shown beneath

Syntactic Typology of Urban Grids

Space syntax models the topology of connections of spaces and urban grids create structure as a pattern of connectivities (Hillier
