libpysal.weights.netW(link_list, share='A', transform='r', **kwargs)[source]

Create a network-contiguity based weight object based on different nodal relationships encoded in a network.


of tuples where each tuple is of the form (o,d) where o is an origin id and d is a destination id


denoting how to define the nodal relationship used to determine neighboring edges; defualt is ‘A’ for any shared nodes between two network edges; options include: O a shared origin node; D a shared destination node; OD; a shared origin or a shared destination node; C a shared node that is the destination of the first edge and the origin of the second edge - i.e., a directed chain is formed moving from edge one to edge two.

transformTransformation for standardization of final OD spatial weight; default

is ‘r’ for row standardized
