Method for describing spatial hierarchical structure of urban facilities

Auteurs :
SADAHIRO, Y.
OKABE, A.

Description :
The AA. propose a new practical method of describing a hierarchical structure. Based upon empirical observations, they assume that the size of a facility is measured by certain numerical values such as population and that a facility is dominated by the nearest facility which has a larger size. Under these assumptions, they can represent the hierarchical structure of facilities in terms of a tree graph. They notice from the empirical study that the hierarchical structure of retail stores in Nishinomiya is more similar to the random hierarchical structure model than to Christaller's model. - (KA)
