Transportation Geography and Network Science is a new wikibook originated in the Spring 2011 by CE5180: Transportation Geography and Network Science at the University of Minnesota (instructor Prof. David Levinson). This wikibook introduces the intersections of theory and applications in Transportation Geography and Network Science. It covers the basics of networks and how transportation systems function on them.

There are many excellent texts on Transportation Geography and several in the emerging field of Network Science. This book does not aim to duplicate them (though there is of course some overlap), but rather to connect these two fields which have separately emerged, as well as providing special topics on related fields.
