This package is part of a refactoring of PySAL.

Spaghetti is an open-source python library for the analysis of network-based spatial data. Originating from the network module in PySAL (Python Spatial Analysis Library), it is under active development for the inclusion of newly proposed methods for building graph-theoretic networks and the analysis of network events.



(Recommended) Install the latest stable of spaghetti by running:

$ pip install spaghetti

Install the most current development version of spaghetti by running:

$ pip install git+


  • scipy
  • numpy
  • libpysal
