Urban Morphometrics: “through” potential routes for pedestrians

Angular Choice reveals the streets that are inherently on many shortest paths, when considering all origins and all destinations within a certain network distance radius.
Therefore, the shortest path is determined not by metric distance, but by relative cost of turning, whereby greater turns are more costly.

Angular Centralities reflect peoples’ natural orientation cognition patterns. A radius of 400 meters reflects those paths which form important ‘through’ routes for pedestrians, and corresponds to the ideal distribution of daily activities.
