We explore the individual decision-making processes of commuters using various forms of transport within a city, forming a modal share which is then built into a dynamical model using travel time as the key variable. From a randomised start in …
We construct Africa’s urban network obtained from OpenStreetMap road data. City centrality is measured using two indices: by the degree of cities, so the number of roads that connect it, and by the intermediacy, or the number of intracity journeys …
Here we estimate the availability of green spaces in 5 625 urban agglomerations in Africa with 10 000 inhabitants and above.
We present a method to construct a simplified and connected urban network. Some network nodes are cities, and others are “transport nodes” representing road crossings or other types of infrastructure.
We analyse the scaling behaviour of cities beyond their boundaries by considering the emergence and growth of nearby cities.
Amid growing enthusiasm for a ”new urban science” and ”smart city” approaches to urban management, ”big data” is expected to create radical new opportunities for urban research and practice. Meanwhile, anthropologists, sociologists, and human geographers, among others, generate highly contextualized …
A new model is presented for representing onward and repeat human migration.
Crime frequently happens in a few places, is mainly suffered and committed by some individuals and now, we know that it is highly concentrated in moments of the week.
An equilibrium model for the number of public transport and car users in a city. A new paradox is encountered.
A complex model of opinion formation based on propaganda helps us explore homophily and polarisation.
