Abstract

From the period before Malaysia's independence until now, there are two significant characteristics of the town formed in small town. Pedestrian behavior in the streets is affected by the connectivity existed from the pattern of the street network of a town. Thus, the existing of characteristics of new and old zone require the pedestrian to travel differently in those environments. By considering a small town consists of the old and new zone and population between 30,000 to 100,000, a street network of Bandar Teluk Intan, Perak was selected. Three sets of data were produced from the land use map and Google Map image, then analyzed it using UCL Depthmap 10. Firstly, solid and void data was used in Visibility graph analysis to measure street connectivity from pedestrian visualization. Second data which convex space data used in Convex space graph analysis to measure street connectivity of spaces in street network that offer pedestrian interaction. Axial-line data is the third data was used in Axial-line graph analysis to measure street connectivity from pedestrian movement in the street network. Finding shows that in the old zone, junctions act as a connector to other streets when pedestrian visualize during travel, space in square and market chose as a meeting place, and the main road as a guide when pedestrian move. In new zone, the main road is a connecting feature for a pedestrian because it's easy to find, connect with most streets, and the possible space to meet people during travel.
