# momepy.betweenness_centrality#

momepy.betweenness_centrality(graph, name='betweenness', mode='nodes', weight='mm_len', endpoints=True, radius=None, distance=None, normalized=False, verbose=True, **kwargs)[source]#

Calculates the shortest-path betweenness centrality for nodes. Wrapper around networkx.betweenness_centrality or networkx.edge_betweenness_centrality. Betweenness centrality of a node v is the sum of the fraction of all-pairs shortest paths that pass through v

$c_B(v) =\sum_{s,t \in V} \frac{\sigma(s, t|v)}{\sigma(s, t)}$

where V is the set of nodes, $$\sigma(s, t)$$ is the number of shortest $$(s, t)$$-paths, and $$\sigma(s, t|v)$$ is the number of those paths passing through some node v other than s, t. If s = t, $$\sigma(s, t) = 1$$, and if v in {s, t}, $$\sigma(s, t|v) = 0$$. Betweenness centrality of an edge e is the sum of the fraction of all-pairs shortest paths that pass through e

$c_B(e) =\sum_{s,t \in V} \frac{\sigma(s, t|e)}{\sigma(s, t)}$

where V is the set of nodes, $$\sigma(s, t)$$ is the number of shortest $$(s, t)$$-paths, and $$\sigma(s, t|e)$$ is the number of those paths passing through edge e.

Parameters:
graphnetworkx.Graph

A Graph representing a street network. Ideally generated from GeoDataFrame using momepy.gdf_to_nx().

namestr, optional

The calculated attribute name.

modestr, default ‘nodes’

The mode of betweenness calculation. 'node' for node-based or 'edges' for edge-based.

weightstr (default ‘mm_len’)

The attribute holding the weight of edge (e.g. length, angle).

Include all neighbors of distance <= radius from n.

distancestr, optional

Use specified edge data key as distance. For example, setting distance=’weight’ will use the edge weight to measure the distance from the node n during ego_graph generation.

normalizedbool, optional

If True the betweenness values are normalized by 2/((n-1)(n-2)), where n is the number of nodes in a subgraph.

verbosebool (default True)

If True, shows progress bars in loops and indication of steps.

**kwargsdict

Keyword argument for networkx.betweenness_centrality or networkx.edge_betweenness_centrality.

Returns:
netxGraph

A networkx.Graph object.

Notes

In case of angular betweenness, implementation is based on “Tasos Implementation”.
