RAMIREZ-URIBE, G. et al. Urban Connectivity Analysis in the City of Hermosillo, Sonora. Epistemus (Sonora) [online]. 2022, vol.16, n.33, pp.16-25.  Epub May 19, 2023. ISSN 2007-8196.

The present study is of a non-experimental, cross-sectional and descriptive type and aims to explain the relationship between the urban morphology of the city and the road axes that compose it, through a spatial syntax analysis implementing the Depthmax tool. Among the first results, it stands out that the road axes with the greatest connectivity are located in the north, center and southwest of the city; the road axes with greater integration and depth are located to the north; and those of greater choice in the center. Finally, it is concluded that through the spatial syntax it is feasible to analyze the possible openings of green areas; which, thanks to the spatial configuration, the main pattern of mobility of the subjects, allows modifications of pedestrianization in areas of interest.

Keywords : Spatial syntax; urban morphology; urban network.
