Hiking determines one of the main movement pattern in residential areas. Pedestrian urban spaces are for people on foot in which visual aspect is one of the most important aspect that sometime ignored by designers. The views of the pedestrian areas are the most important factors of the urban spaces which can be attractive or even boring.

In order to test this procedure, 17th-Shahrivar pedestrian, placed in the east of Tehran, has been studied. The main method of research is descriptive-analytical. This method emphasis on analysis of visual aspect of the content and continues by image fixation and then using the image processing through effective parameters of the visual mechanism.
