road map network
build a network that will allow us to optimally set milestones for any form of athletic traveling (walking, running, and biking)
What it does
the python program takes mtx files and converts it to csv files where gephi can build a visual network
Challenges I ran into
the road networks were stripped of unique identifying data which kept me from developing my software any further. gephi also has issues with data sets that are larger than 256mb in size which requires changing gephi configurations.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
convert a mtx file to csv, and build a network that shows the road connections
What I learned
i developed my knowledge of networks further as well as learning how to parse out data from a file and convert it to a format that another software can use.
What's next for RoadMap
get a better road network that contains useful data such as road length, longitude and latitude. once i have a better data set i can find the shortest path for an athlete to go on walks, runs, or biking
