Blocktown transport network

03 Jan 2021

I’ve spent some time working on Blocktown’s transport network. Below you can see the road and street network. Primary roads are like the main arteries of the city, secondary roads are like the veins, and local roads work like capillaries.

I’ve also been working on the shortest path algorithm and now have a working version! I’ll write a post when I have a visual way of showing how it works and post the code.

I also want to create an interactive d3 visualisation of the results of the shortest path algortithm on the road network so you can see the accessibility of each zone visually using chloropleth style colouration.
