Methods of dynamical analysis developed in location theory are applied to the problem of the evolution of transport systems. It is shown that the influence of transport variables on urban structure can be modeled; here, the reverse is attempted. The analysis proves to be difficult because of the combinatorial problems associated with large networks and a suggestion is explored for making progress using the concept of "spider" networks.
