To classify Fanily streams, we define the node as a data structure Node(Time, Location) or nₒ(tₒᵉ, lₒᵉ) → nᵢ(tᵢᵒ, lᵢᵒ) where,
tᵢᵒ - tₒᵉ ≥ 1 year
lᵢᵒ - lₒᵉ ≥ 100 km
nᵢ ≥ 100
The root node(s) is(are)
nᴿ(tᴿ, lᴿ), while the leaf nodes are
Regarding the Fanily genealogies, we shed lights on the leaf nodes, while biographies and case stories will be collected in the next section so as to enrich the evolutionary Streams by rendering historical images.
