alcyon: Spatial Network Analysis

Interface package for 'sala', the spatial network analysis library from the 'depthmapX' software application. The R parts of the code are based on the 'rdepthmap' package. Allows for the analysis of urban and building-scale networks and provides metrics and methods usually found within the Space Syntax domain. Methods in this package are described by K. Al-Sayed, A. Turner, B. Hillier, S. Iida and A. Penn (2014) "Space Syntax methodology", and also by A. Turner (2004) <> "Depthmap 4: a researcher's handbook".
