This study addresses the question “What is the appropriate design solution for the developed streets of a Javanese coastal city” The presentation focuses on three major streets in the northern part of the city of Surabaya, which have spread outwards from the historic core. GIS-GRASS, a Geographical Information System, can be used to map areal objects such as land-use, the role and function of streets in the city, traffic, movement and static activities, and linear objects such as rivers and the boundaries of areal planning units. The spatial database recorded here includes the configurational mapping of space syntax. For the local government, whose concern is to prepare design solutions which take account, inter alia, of the role of the street within the configuration of the city as a whole, this is a valuable tool.
