Datasets – space syntax Segments angular choice is : Measures the relative straightness of each segment from all other segments in the system. It calculates the number of times each segment falls on the shortest path between all pairs of segments where shortest path is that of least angular deviation - Red lines (high values) indicate greatest potential through movement. - Blue lines (low values) indicate lowest potential through movement.
