We want to thank Darja Dubravcic (bio-inspired project coordinator at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) for the nice examples of networks in Nature and her passion on biomimicry, and Carlos Molinero (researcher in urban networks at The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis) for his models on road creation, which indeed helped us to understand better what was going on.
SThAR is a spin-off of the EPFL in Switzerland dedicated to understand mobility patterns and communication flows. We want to understand how people travel, why we move, how we share our opinions, how cities grow, and how they are connected. Quite often, we find beauty in the data we analyze. We created this website to share that beauty with you. Feel free to share your thoughts, we will be happy to listen!
