Legal Neighborhoods and Networked Communities: The Visual Inspection Post

As part of my work analyzing the relationship between Pittsburgh’s legal neighborhoods and the communities that can be found by analyzing the structure of the road network, I generated numerous maps that overlap network modularity classes on the city neighborhoods. For one of these maps (which included 86 modularity classes), I conducted an extensive visual … Read more Legal Neighborhoods and Networked Communities: The Visual Inspection Post

So we settled for something that was within reach: a method that would let us at least find a complete … Read more Pathfinding Through the Pittsburgh Road Network: What Worked
