AbstractConfeego is a suite of tools to understand and harness the e®ects of spatial con¯guration in urban systems or complex buildings developed by Space Syntax Limited and is available free for academic use. Confeego has been developed to support the various phases of a consultancy or research project and in that sense consists of several tools that are grouped according to the type of tasks involved. These tasks fall generally under the categories of data translation, data collection, map processing (axial, convex and isovists), data analysis and data visualisation. Confeego is a plug-in for the MapInfo Professional GIS running on Windows and this has several implications in the use of the software. It might not be ideal for space syntax beginners with no GIS experience but it o®ers the classic space syntax tools plus it can import results from di®erent space syntax software and the user bene¯ts from functionality for querying, displaying and analysing multiple layers of information. For those who require the analysis of large, complex systems combining a multitude of data sources and several types of analysis Confeego provides an adequate work platform.
