Networks are graphical representations of systems, which are consisted of vertices(nodes) and edges(links), as well as their associated attributes. For example, people in Facebook can be viewed as vertices and friendship among them as edges. Also, each vertex may have attributes, such as age, gender, occupation and so on. Thus, we can map Facebook into a network, and study it as a social network.
Currently, I am working on roadway transportation network. The network is formed by around 174,000 road segments(edges) and 137,000 intersections(vertices), along with some properties, such as geographical coordinates, distances, road classes, road lanes and etc.. We are trying to simulate the real world transportation scenario.
