||Entendiendo la ciudad como una red
||This paper studies how people extract qualitative information from spatial networks and, in particular, how people encode hierarchical information taken from urban grids. It describes an experiment in which fifty - two people were asked to outline the main street of three different spatial systems that were intentionally designed to look alike. People´s answers were evaluated by examining their configurative and metric characteristics. The main findings show that retrieving hierarchical information depends on the coordination of metric (how long a given street is) and configurative properties (how connected to the entire system a street is).
