title Aplicability of 2D and 3D isovists and visibility graph analysis for evaluating urban vulnerability to crime: the case of Boa Viagem, in Recife
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 308-315
summary This work aims to investigate the applicability of 2D and 3D isovists, as well as Visibility Graph Analysis (VGA), for evaluating urban vulnerability to crime. The methodology is based on correlations between number of crime occurrences and measurements of 2D and 3D isovists, and mean values of visual integration (VGA). The 2D isovists were produced through DeCoding Spaces Toolbox for Grasshopper and the 3D isovists were generated by using algorithms within Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. VGA maps were elaborated within DepthmapX. For this study, were selected nine street segments of Boa Viagem, located in Recife-PE, a neighbourhood which is known for high rates of robberies. Although the number of samples is reduced, the results suggest that criminals prefer much more visually integrated spaces with low occlusivity and fewer spatial cavities.
