The universal nature of humans is formed by the view angle and the visibility range. However, the majority of theories on spatial structure analysis based on the visual perception do neither reflect the view angle nor consider only the flat view angle. Some theories that reflect them is a theory where the part included in the view angle and the part excluded in the view angle have been separated in a dichotomous way, excluding the universal characteristics of humans. This study applied an observing probability to a 3-D visibility analysis theory by conducting a eye-tracking experiment, empirically determining the limits of the field of view, and deriving the observing probability by view angle. In addition, it attempted to identify the probability by manufacturing an application of spacial, visual perception analysis and applying the concept of multiple frustum culling. For the characteristics of observation, the data were measured and collected regarding the walking course for 3 minutes for an optional space, aimed for 33 people as subjects. Subsequently, the data were prepared by analyzing the observation fixation frequency probability.
