The regeneration and maintenance of large-scale station environments is planned for high functionality with integrated urban functions. Such highly functional space is required to safely and comfortably accommodate extremely dense crowds. It is more strongly required than before to objectively evaluate the design of a space in terms of crowd control. The purpose of this study is to visualize the place and the degree of local congestion in order to allow an intuitive grasp based on the analysis of crowd behavior.
