The network was chosen to illustrate how the three measures of centrality record different properties of the network. Note each measure identifies different streets as having the highest value. (a) The highest degree centrality street reflects the fact that this street has six streets connected to it. (b) The highest closeness centrality streets reflect the fact that these streets are topologically closest to all other streets in the network. (c) The highest betweenness centrality street indicates that this street would be travelled most frequently when travelling from any one street to another.
