Organic Urban Boundaries and Clusters – Analyzing Singapore as an Example

  title={Organic Urban Boundaries and Clusters – Analyzing Singapore as an Example},
  author={Yimin Zhou and Doheum Park and Sean L. Wu},
Cities are dynamic complex systems evolving through their functions and human activities. While the regional boundaries are artificially created, dwellers move around them by walking, cycling or taking vehicles with various purposes and such movements in the cities generate “organic” boundaries. In this paper, we introduce how to extract such organic boundaries of cities based on the human mobility data and apply the method to analyze Singapore. We first create Voronoi cells, i.e. unit regions…

Fast unfolding of communities in large networks

This work proposes a heuristic method that is shown to outperform all other known community detection methods in terms of computation time and the quality of the communities detected is very good, as measured by the so-called modularity.

Growth, innovation, scaling, and the pace of life in cities

Empirical evidence is presented indicating that the processes relating urbanization to economic development and knowledge creation are very general, being shared by all cities belonging to the same urban system and sustained across different nations and times.
