Retail stores along the road network generate additional traffic and it changes the spatial travel pattern of the street network. Therefore, it is better to understand the spatial configurations and classify the retail spatial pattern of the retail stores at the early stage of retail development. Therefore, this article objects to delineate the traffic impact area based on spatial patterns of the street network at retail stores in Colombo, Sri Lanka using the space syntax analysis from depth map software with GIS technique. Thus, this paper tends to derive the possible traffic impact area on the spatial configuration of the road network at supermarkets by calculating the level of integration, choice, connectivity, angular connectivity and normalized choice of the street network by the way of space syntax technique. Further, this paper categorizes the traffic impact areas of retail activity through the GIS overlay tool. The finding of this paper support to get a better understanding of the spatial patterns at the urban retail stores in Colombo area. This paper tends to make efficient locational based decision-makings for urban planning interventions based on the spatial configuration in Colombo city
