The city Voronoi diagram is induced by quickest paths, in the L 1 plane speeded
up by an isothetic transportation network. We investigate the rich geometric and
algorithmic properties of city Voronoi diagrams, and report on their use in processing
quickest­path queries.
In doing so, we revisit the fact that not every Voronoi­type diagram has inter­
pretations in both the distance model and the wavefront model. Especially, straight
skeletons are a relevant example where an interpretation in the former model is lack­
ing. We clarify the relationship between these models, and further draw a connection
