Comparing Complex Networks: An Application to Emergency Managers' Mental Models

Nuno Caseiro, Paulo Trigo
2012 2012 Third Brazilian Workshop on Social Simulation  
This paper describes an experimental application of the distance ratio measure used to compare individual networks among themselves and to analyze the aggregated network representing the group mental model from the field of emergency management. The data was obtained by surveying a group of Civil Protection graduates and aggregating all the answers (shared mental model). The data allowed us to deepen the analysis of the resulting network in order to research for differences among networks.
