User-centric time-distance representation of road networks.
Lecture Notes in Computer Science Proc. of the GIScience'10, 6292.
This paper presents a new algorithm for computing timedistance
transformations of a road network based on modified multidimensional
scaling. The algorithm is designed to perform on a realworld
road network, and provides alternative visualisations for travel
time cognition and route planning. Several extensions are explored, including
user-centric and route-centric road map transformations. Our
implementation of the algorithm can be applied to any locality where
travel time road network data is available. Here, it is illustrated on road
network data for a rural region in Ireland. Limitations of the proposed
algorithm are examined, and potential solutions are discussed.
