Multidimensional urban segregation: toward a neural network measure

  title={Multidimensional urban segregation: toward a neural network measure},
  author={Madalina Olteanu and Aur{\'e}lien Hazan and Marie Cottrell and Julien Randon-Furling},
  journal={Neural Computing and Applications},
We introduce a multidimensional, neural network approach to reveal and measure urban segregation phenomena, based on the self-organizing map algorithm (SOM). The multidimensionality of SOM allows one to apprehend a large number of variables simultaneously, defined on census blocks or other types of statistical blocks, and to perform clustering along them. Levels of segregation are then measured through correlations between distances on the neural network and distances on the actual geographical…

Segregation through the multiscalar lens
A method of measuring segregation which captures the multidimensional nature of mixing in metropolitan areas and introduces a mathematical framework that allows one to carry out multiscalar and multigroup spatial exploratory analysis across urban regions.
Análisis de segregación residencial como dinámica socio-espacial en grandes ciudades: caso de estudio París
The purpose of this work is to present a study of residential segregation based on trajectories. The intention is to verify whether the fingerprint of a particular city, in this case Paris, is
Optimized Query Algorithms for Top- K Group Skyline
A group Skyline ranking strategy and the corresponding SLGS algorithm on Skyline layer are proposed according to the number of Skylines layer and vertices in the layer, and a group Skylines ranking strategy based on vertex coverage is proposed, and corresponding VCGS algorithm and optimized algorithm VCGS+ are proposed.


Multidimensional urban segregation: An exploratory case study
This paper introduces a novel, multidimensional approach based on the Self-Organizing Map algorithm (SOM), and illustrates how this method allows one to describe the complex interplay between social groups' residential patterns and the geography of metropolitan facilities and services.
Global and local spatial indices of urban segregation
A global spatial indices of segregation that capture interaction among population groups at different scales are proposed and are illustrated using an artificial dataset and a case study of socio‐economic segregation in São José dos Campos.
Entropy in Spatial Aggregation
This paper introduces an approach to the measurement of locational phenomena in a spatial hierarchy using entropy statistics. A number of such statistics suitable for the study of spatial aggregation
3. Measures of Spatial Segregation
The measurement of residential segregation patterns and trends has been limited by a reliance on segregation measures that do not appropriately take into account the spatial patterning of population
Schelling's Segregation Model: Parameters, Scaling, and Aggregation
Thomas Schelling proposed a simple spatial model to illustrate how, even with relatively mild assumptions on each individual's nearest neighbor preferences, an integrated city would likely unravel to
Local Geographic Variation of Public Services Inequality: Does the Neighborhood Scale Matter?
This study aims to explore the effect of the neighborhood scale when estimating public services inequality based on the aggregation of social, environmental, and health-related indicators and finds that GWPCA performs better than PCA in multivariate spatial inequality estimation.
SOMbrero: An R Package for Numeric and Non-numeric Self-Organizing Maps
SOMbrero is a new R package that implements self-organizing maps for contingency tables and for dissimilarity data, all relying on stochastic (i.e., on-line) training.
Implementing Spatial Segregation Measures in R
This work has implemented several newly proposed segregation indices in R, an open source software environment for statistical computing and graphics, as a package called seg, which provides detailed control over the calculation process with a wide range of input parameters.
