Network Analysis in Geographic Information Science : Review , Assessment , and Projections

  title={Network Analysis in Geographic Information Science : Review , Assessment , and Projections},
  author={Kevin M. Curtin},
Network data structures were one of the earliest representations in geographic information systems (GIS), and network analysis remains one of the most significant and persistent research and application areas in geographic information science (GIScience). Network analysis has a strong theoretical basis in the mathematical disciplines of graph theory and topology, and it is the topological relationships inherent in networks that led to revolutionary advances in GIS data structures. Networks can… CONTINUE READING
