It is said that the layout of the transportation network in the human ecosystem in major cities across nations is relatively similar to the pattern of the veins of a leaf. Since mathematically it seems roads (transportation) patterns in geospace have a lot in common, would we see similar patterns emerging in the communication network in cyberspace?
In geospace, like the forces that shape any urban transportation network (economic, demographic, social, workforce, and geographic forces), similar forces also seem to shape the diffusion of information and communication networks in cyberspace. Driven by a move towards a smart world, smart roads that can take us safely and securely to the known spaces: cyberspace, geospace, aquaspace, and space (CAGS) are driving the design of the next generation communication network. So, how is the cyber road planned in order to give us the information and communication network that connects CAGS?
