Though not exactly what you're looking for it worthes trying this quite
pleasent piece, an overall introduction to the issue.

Part One: Spatial Structures
I. Topologic Structures: branching networks; circuit networks; barrier
2. Geometric Structures: network shape; network density; pattern and order;
Part Two: Evaluation of Structures
3. Structure and Flow: flow and network efficiency; adjustment in stream
systems; problems and flow forecasting
4. Location of Networks: location of routes; location of boundaries;
Part Three: Structural Change
5. Growth and Transformation: patterns of spatial evolution; simulation
models; network transformation

> network-theoretical methodologes for modeling economic-geographic scenarios.
