[VisGraph] - Space Analysis

Text Via the visibility graph it is possible to mathematically analyse and display inter-visibility qualities within architectural space. There are plenty of tools doing this sort of thing associated within spatial network analysis software. With Grasshopper for Rhino I've tried to get a real-time feedback method for recent urban massing studies. Thanks to to] for the vb.net scripting part of it!

Hi iA,
this post is a bit old though. I tried back then to port a visibility graph approach into GH. The linear & unobstructed connection from and to every grid cell is added up and colored accordingly. Since quite some releases you have an IsoVist component which does a similar thing (depends on your objectives).

Hope that helps,
