In this paper, we extended road-based topological analysis to both nationwide and urban road networks, and concentrated on a sensitivity study with respect to the formation of self-organized natural roads based on the Gestalt principle of good continuity. Both annual average daily traffic (AADT) and global positioning system (GPS) data were used to correlate with a series of ranking metrics including five centrality-based metrics and two PageRank metrics. It was found that there exists a… Expand
Road traffic: A case study of flow and path-dependency in weighted directed networks
TLDR
This study has studied the path-dependencies in closed trails in four metropolitan areas in England and the USA and computed their global and spatial correlations with measured traffic flows and found that the heterogeneous distribution of traffic intensity is mirrored by the distribution of agglomerate path- dependency.

Weighted ego network for forming hierarchical structure of road networks
TLDR
The hierarchies formed by weighted ego network analysis are more consistent with the real-life traffic flow, and the improvement is clearly observable. Expand
Understanding Urban Traffic-Flow Characteristics: A Rethinking of Betweenness Centrality
TLDR
This study estimates urban traffic flow using GPS-enabled taxi trajectory data in Qingdao, China, and examines the capability of the betweenness centrality of the street network to predict traffic flow, indicating that the proposed model, which incorporates geographical constraints and human mobility patterns, can interpret urban traffic Flow well.

Intra-City Urban Network and Traffic Flow Analysis from GPS Mobility Trace
TLDR
It is shown that betweenness traffic analysis can be improved by a simple extended framework which incorporates both the notions of node weights and fastest-path betweenness, and it is demonstrated that the framework is superior to traditional methods based solely on simple topological perspectives. Expand
Road network generalization considering traffic flow patterns
TLDR
This study proposes an improved method for road network generalization that considers network geometry, topology, and traffic flow patterns and demonstrates that the proposed method can preserve both the ‘Good Continuity’ principle and the transport function relationship of roads after generalization.

Why topology matters in predicting human activities
TLDR
It is found that natural streets are the best representation in terms of human activities or traffic prediction, followed by axial lines, and that neither street segments nor line segments bear a good correlation between network parameters and tweet locations. Expand
Road network selection for small-scale maps using an improved centrality-based algorithm
TLDR
The main contribution of this paper consists of four extensions that address deficiencies of the basic centrality-based algorithm and lead to a significant improvement of the results. Expand
A network centrality measure framework for analyzing urban traffic flow: A case study of Wuhan, China
TLDR
The results show that the modified measurements, for analyzing traffic flow, are superior to conventional centrality measurements, and helps to shed light into the understanding of urban traffic flow in relation to different modes from the perspective of complex networks. Expand
Exploring the patterns and evolution of self-organized urban street networks through modeling
TLDR
A growing model for self-organized urban street networks involves a competition among new centers with different values of attraction radius and a local optimal principle of both geometrical and topological factors and implies that a simple universal growth mechanism exists in self- organized cities.

Street‐based topological representations and analyses for predicting traffic flow in GIS
TLDR
It is found surprisingly that street‐based topological representations (or street–street topologies) tend to be better representations than the axial map, and vehicle flow is correlated to a morphological property of streets better than that of axial lines. Expand
A topological pattern of urban street networks: Universality and peculiarity
In this paper, we derive a topological pattern of urban street networks using a large sample (the largest so far to the best of our knowledge) of 40 US cities and a few more from elsewhere ofExpand
The network analysis of urban streets: A dual approach
TLDR
The authors show that the absence of any clue of assortativity differentiates urban street networks from other non-geographic systems and that most of the considered networks have a broad degree distribution typical of scale-free networks and exhibit small-world properties as well. Expand
Topological Analysis of Urban Street Networks

It is shown that large urban street networks form small-world networks but exhibit no scale-free property. Expand

TLDR
A novel justification as to why space syntax, or topological analysis in general, can be used to predict human movement is provided, and the underlying space–space topology demonstrates small world and scale free properties. Expand
Network and Psychological Effects in Urban Movement
TLDR
It is shown how cognitive inferences can be made from aggregate urban flow data and distinguished from network effects, and that urban movement is shaped far more by the geometrical and topological properties of the grid than by its metric properties. Expand

This paper presents a data modeling process that is based on a combination of complex system theory and the object-oriented paradigm and produced an object- oriented spatio-temporal data model. Expand
A new theory of space syntax
TLDR
An appropriate algebra is developed which provides a clearer approach to connectivity and distance in the equivalent graph representations, and these variants for the primal and dual problems are demonstrated in one of the first space syntax street network examples, the French village of Gassin.

From Axial to Road-Centre Lines: A New Representation for Space Syntax and a New Model of Route Choice for Transport Network Analysis
TLDR
This work proposes that a recently introduced method of analysis, angular segment analysis, can marry axial and road-centre line representations, and in doing so reflect a cognitive model of how route choice decisions may be made, and implies that there is no reason why space syntax inspired measures cannot be combined with transportation network analysis representations in order to create a new, cognitively coherent, model of movement in the city.

The spatial structure of networks
TLDR
There are strong signatures in these networks of topography and use patterns, giving the networks shapes that are quite distinct from one another and from non-geographic networks. Expand
