Puzzled by Polycentric Distribution

i don't have access to download the package files available on website. Is there anyway I can download package?

I checked the outputs of the first network constructor component and found the same 829 segments. However, as you idicated, I changed the scale from meters to milimeters (mm) and the analysis worked when running FlatLandscape only. 

When running the Topographic, however, an error message appears: "1. Solution exception: Value was too large or too small for Int32." 
Ps: I do rescaled the topography along with the streets network

I'm a brazilian master's student and I'm working with the city of Ipatinga - MG and its Topography.
Thanks for all your support :)

Hi Renato, 829 line segments (after shattering) should really be fine. However, looking at the image I guess the original number of line segments is 829 and after they are shattered you end up with many more. Please check the outputs of the first network constructor component and make sure that the shattered pieces are not too many (and not too small). Judging the scale from the grid of Rhino I guess your streets are way too long, can you check the length of a few segments?

Hi Prof. @Pirouz Nourian. Thanks for helping me.
The number of line segments is 829. The units i'm working with is meters. 
I'm tryling to analyze a neighborhood as shown in the image. Other components have been having problems, such as the Shortest Path and the Network Distance Calculator.

@Renato Sá:

Hi Renato, can you please check the number of graph nodes (line segments)? Could it be that your units (meters/centimeters) are such that the network is shattered into too many pieces?

Hello Could anyone help me ??
The Betweenness Centrality component sends this message error: 1. Solution exception: Array dimensions have exceeded the accepted range.

@Thomas Lagarde: what do you see at the bottom of the list of errors?

Comment by Thomas Lagarde on August 4, 2020 at 11:25am

I got this on Rhino 6 64 bits after using your .dll, what could be the problem ?
