A question: If we include, following 'TeleAtlas' for instance, to map such
countless bits of space as 'The ramp to the car park at 1-19 Torrington
Plc' or 'The entrance to the emergency services at UCH' into a street
network, could it change its degree distribution from a 'log-normal' to
a 'power-law'? If so, can we really claim that the degree distribution of
street networks does not follow a power law but a log-normal?
