Spatial Connectivity is a measure of connectivity between locations. It is often used to examine the extent to which how rural areas interact with urban areas. The measure can also incorporate the number of connections, scales with population size, where the geographic location of people within a city is linked by the spatial flows that move information, materials, or people over geographical space. However, travel time highlights connectivity across a geographic area. Travel-time connectivity is also a good measure of the relative advantage of a given place in attracting to itself the centralization and specialization of human activity (Donald G. 2010). This research focuses on distance and travel time from a population center to 100 random points in ten-mile radius of the population center. The calculation is done for majors different cities in the Great Plain Region to compare their spatial connectivity.
