W

Weight

A property of a network feature typically used to represent a cost for traversing across an edge or through a junction. For example, in a water network, a certain amount of pressure is lost when traveling the length of a transmission main due to surface friction within the pipe. Weights are calculated based on some attribute of each feature. In this same transmission main example, an attribute that affects the weight would be the length of the feature.
