Space-Syntax study on bike lanes in Zürich

With the help of the Space Syntax Theory the “Masterplan Velo” issued by the City of Zürich was mathematically evaluated, trying to answer two questions:

  1. Which missing bike lanes should be prioritized in the near future?
  2. Does the plan address all of the problems posed by the current Situation?

The whole city was tested for the value of choice and by overlaying of different states of the bike network the above questions were clearly answered. Since many relevant parameters are not know or cannot be taken into calculation the goal of the study was to visualize tendencies rather than absolute values.
