3.1.7 Change the resolution of a field analysis

By default, the Isovist_App will run its analysis at a standard resolution that provides a fine gradation of data; typically between 500,000 and 1 million points per drawing. To increase this:

  • Open the ‘Drawing and Setup menu’.
  • Select ‘Standard Resolution’ followed by the preferred increased resolution option; ‘Mid’, ‘High’ or ‘Epic Resolution’.
  • Take care to consider computer hardware capabilities. In many instances, the lowest resolution setting will suffice; higher settings provide more data, but take longer to compute and can crash older devices.
  • Once the required resolution has been set, it is advisable to re-check the selected analysis areas.
