Let us note that the implementation of other eigenvectors as the basis for the 3D representations of the dual graph worsens the quality of segmentation in a sense that it turns to be incompatible with the traditional sestieri of Venice.
Sestieri of Venice
The properties of nodes with respect to random walks allow partitioning the city canal network into disjoint divisions which may be identified with the traditional divisions of Venice (sestieri).
