This study utilized OSM data to collect road network data for North Korean cities and applied OSMnx to analyze the spatial patterns of the road network. The analysis revealed disparities in road network characteristics among cities. Additionally, cluster analysis using road network density identified cities with similar characteristics, and directional analysis of the road networks found that many cities display a high level of disorder in radial patterns. As for North Korea’s road network, which was difficult to analyze, this study is meaningful in that it collected data using OSM data and analyzed road network patterns in North Korean cities.
본 연구는 OSM 데이터를 활용하여 북한 도시별 도로망 데이터를 수집하고 OSMnx을 적용하여 도로망 네트워크의 공간패턴을 분석하였다. 분석 결과, 도로망의 특성에 있어서 도시 간의 격차를 확인하였다. 이와 함께 도로 밀도를 이용한 군집분석을 통해 유사한 특징을 갖는 도시들을 확인하였고, 도로망의 방향성 분석을 이용해서 많은 도시가 무질서함이 높은 방사형 패턴을 확인하였다. 그동안 분석이 어려웠던 북한의 도로망에 대해, 본 연구는 OSM 데이터를 이용하여 자료를 수집하고 북한 도시들의 도로망 패턴을 분석했다는 점에서 연구의 의미가 있다.
