What is network partitioning?
Network partitioning is the process of creating zones or
territories from a street network, such that each link is assigned
to the closest or least cost service location, based on a service
value, such as driving distance or time.
For example, you could
use network partitioning to divide a city into zones based on
the response time from all of the fire stations within that
city. Each zone would be comprised of the streets for which its
fire station has the fastest response time.

The streets in this map were partitioned into
zones based on the driving time to the nearest service point. No
matter where you are in any of the zones, the point that is the
shortest drive-time away is the one located within that zone.
