normalized integration network model
Integration is a normalised measure of distance from any space of origin to all others in a system. In general, it calculates how close the origin space is to all other spaces, and can be seen as the measure of relative asymmetry (or relative depth)

This network model quantifies urban spatial configurations at different scales, revealing the centrality of the urban structure, or to-movement on a range of scales depending on the set radius. In the above model, it is scaled to metric distances in meters.
normalized choice network model
Choice measures how likely an axial line or a street segment it is to be passed through on all shortest routes from all spaces to all other spaces in the entire system or within a predetermined distance (radius) from each segment.
