Seeing historical processes in road networks' patterns

Tim de Chant on Strano et al.Seeing historical processes in road networks' patterns:

"By themselves, these discoveries are clever and insightful. But the interesting stuff will happen when urban planning completes the transition from an observation-based science to a mathematical one, much as ecology did in the recent past. Then we’ll have a real sense of how these models will change our understanding of cities.
