Abstract

This research note introduces network analysis (graph theory) as a method which can be used to analyse the morphology of systems of interconnected concepts in geography, and to determine the centrality of concepts. The possibilities of graph theory are investigated in a study of the chrono-geographic space-time language in Times, spaces and places by Parkes & Thrift. This study is based on two levels of analysis: first the level of the whole network of 351 concepts and 651 relationships: and secondly, the level of the four subgraphs, the spatial, temporal, spatio-temporal and other concepts. The possibilities and limitations of this approach are discussed in the conclusions.
