Visualizing regional urban systems

I am currently working in a research project about regional urban systems in Brazil.

It's all about urban networks: urban functions and urban hierarchy; Christaller; spatial distribution of cities and how they connect to each other; Sassem; management centers; Growth Poles, Perroux etc.

And when it comes to network of cities, it's hard to find good visualization at the appropriate scale. So I post here some really extraordinary visualizations presented by BBC (series Britain From Above)

Telephone Network

The Lights of Britain

Air Traffic
