The overall properties of space-filling curves, together with the results for the examples shown in Figs. 10.2 and 10.3, indicate that space-filling curves are a good heuristics for an efficient load distribution of data into compact partitions. It would, of course, be interesting to be able to quantify this property, or give a mathematical property to characterise it.
