Especially old cities like Augsburg or Athens? I was looking for such a correlation but really can't see that


@siccegge @popefucker It's also got a lot to do with how much of the city was built in a planned matter (which doesn't necessarily correlate with age), how much of the city's size grew by annexing other villages (which have their own directions, usually), if there is a river and if that river is curved, etc. Also, compare to the original blog post for American cities, which are terribly griddy and aligned.

Steep hills and rivers indeed.
