Övrigt - Programkod, 2023

PST is an open source tool for performing spatial analyses. It combines the space syntax description of the urban environment with conventional descriptions of attraction into a combined accessibility analysis tool. It is currently available as a plugin for QGIS, an open source GIS software. Earlier PST versions are also available as a plugin for the MapInfo Professional GIS software. PST is developed by KTH School of Architecture, Chalmers School of Architecture (SMoG) and Spacescape AB. Alexander Ståhle, Lars Marcus, Daniel Koch, Martin Fitger, Ann Legeby, Gianna Stavroulaki, Meta Berghauser Pont, Anders Karlström, Pablo Miranda Carranza, Tobias Nordström. The software was first introduced in a paper by Ståhle, A., Marcus, L. and Karlström, A., (2005), ”Place Syntax: Geographic accessibility with axial lines in GIS”, published in the proceedings of the 5th Space Syntax Symposium held in Delft, the Netherlands.
