RGSQ Lecture Series

Thomas Sigler, University of Queensland

Many geographical phenomena can be interpreted from a network perspective, including street grids, information flows, commercial volumes, traffic patterns, and human migration. This presentation overviews the application of network theory to understanding how cities are globally connected through flows of capital, people, and information. It begins with a basic explanation of network theory, before delving more deeply into the assumptions that feed into such research.

A series of powerful visualisations illustrates how the world around us is comprised of networks, and how we can formulate better policy by understanding.
