Abstract: Urban villages are the legacy of China's rapid urban development, those is characterized by high mobility and complex structure, which is endangering the personal safety of residents in urban villages and the surrounding people, affecting the harmony and stability of the communities in urban villages, and not conducive to social and economic development. By taking the distribution of Robbery, Grab and Theft cases as the data source, combining with big data POI information obtained from Gaode, which is the one of the large map service companies in China. Methods such as kernel density analysis, standard deviation ellipsometry and spatial syntax theory are applied in the study, respectively, in order to quantitatively analyze the relationship between the spatial configuration and the environment of crime distribution within urban villages. The results show that: the accessibility, global integration, local integration and connectivity affect the occurrence of Robbery, Grab and Theft and the escape routes of criminals in the village. Different types of POI points and the occurrence of Robbery, Grab and Theft are correlated. This study helps to identify and improve the environmental factors that induce crime, and provides some references on security for the future renovation and construction of public spaces in urban villages in southern Fujian, China.
