The spectrum of an axial graph is proposed as a means for comparison between spaces, particularly for measuring between very large and complex graphs. A number of methods have been used in recent years for comparative analysis within large sets of urban areas, both to investigate properties of specific known types of street network or to propose a taxonomy of urban morphology based on an analytical technique.
