A First, Visual Insight into the Process

The operationalization of exposure allows to create images which give an insight into the process occurring in the structure of city-linked events. Distributions are shown at the lower right of each image and the colors refer to the degree of exposure in the total population. Individual actors in the structure are colored according to their degree of exposure.

 

How the intensity of contacts changes over the three periods of time becomes clear in the following three visualizations. The images exhibit an overall rise of exposure and a steep increase of the spread for the most exposed actors. One can see the general tendency that the pressure spreads from the center of this system to its periphery.
