Network.allneighbordistances(sourcepattern, destpattern=None, fill_diagonal=None, n_processes=None, gen_tree=False, snap_dist=False)[source]

Compute either all distances between i and j in a single point pattern or all distances between each i from a source pattern and all j from a destination pattern.

sourcepattern : str or

The key of a point pattern snapped to the network OR the full object.

destpattern : str

(Optional) The key of a point pattern snapped to the network OR the full object.

fill_diagonal : float, int

(Optional) Fill the diagonal of the cost matrix. Default in None and will populate the diagonal with numpy.nan Do not declare a destpattern for a custom fill_diagonal.

n_processes : int, str

(Optional) Specify the number of cores to utilize. Default is 1 core. Use (int) to specify an exact number or cores. Use (“all”) to request all available cores.

gen_tree : bool

rebuild shortest path {True}, or skip {False}

snap_dist : bool

include the distance from the original location to the snapped location along the network. Default is False.

nearest : numpy.ndarray

An array of shape (n,n) storing distances between all points.

tree_nearest : dict

nearest network node to point pattern node shortest path lookup
