3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com2 Network analysis Networks – basic components: Collections of interconnected linear forms: Lines (or Edges, E) Intersections (or Vertices, V) Regions (or Cells, C) - created by the partitioning of space by the lines Planar - e.g. streets, all on same level, vertices at every intersection of edges Non-planar - e.g. airline routes, highways with bridges/flyovers, electronic circuits

3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com3 Network analysis Sample problems : Shortest (least time/cost) between vertices (SPA) Shortest path (tree) connecting all vertices (MST) Shortest route visiting all locations once and returning to start point (Travelling Salesman Problem, or TSP) Minimum cost of constructing a network between a set of vertices Identification of zones within specified travel time/cost Designing a network with minimum cost of USE Designing a network with minimum travel time to specified vertices Including constraints, e.g. edge capacity, maximum distances/times permitted, vehicle capacity

3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com22 Network Analysis Dantzig Shortest path algorithm (SPA) s=1, t=3: Step 1: identify the shortest (least distance/cost/time) link from vertex 1 - this is to vertex 2 (cost = 4). Add vertex 2 and link from 1 to 2 to the tagged set Step 2: identify the shortest (least cost/time) link from vertex 1 or from vertex 2 plus link 1 distance - this is to vertex 4 from 2 (cost=6). Add vertex 4 and link 2 to 4 to the tagged set Step 3: identify the shortest (least cost/time) link from the tagged set - this is from vertex 1 to 2 to 4 to 3 (cost=7) Stop - all vertices reached; repeat from vertex 2, 3 and 4

3 rd editionwww.spatialanalysisonline.com23 Network analysis SPA: Dijkstra algorithm 1: initialise all vertices such that d(t)= and d(s)=0 2: For each edge leading from s, add the edge length from s to the current value of the path length at s. If this new distance is less than the current value for d(t) replace this with the lower value 3: choose the lowest value in the set d(t) and move the current (active) vertex to this location 4: iterate steps 2 and 3 until the target vertex is reached or all vertices have been scanned Optionally augment with preceding SP vertex list

What if demand varies across the target points? Capacity constraints – e.g. service vehicles may have limited capacity and vary in type what mix would be optimal? do tours/deliveries have to be made in certain time windows?
