This paper discusses the comparison of residential/ business street sections/blocks from the view point of the distributions on the boundary line lengths in typical world towns, and presents their characteristics as human activities in their districts. We extract the characteristics of six typical street sections in the towns, compare the characteristics of their sections by examining their towns, and try to generate future general town sections by considering the updates in temporal boarders based on Schelling segregation model. We focus on the way that is the distributions on line lengths of boundaries in sections, where their boundaries are approximated by piecewise linear. We show that we can find the human characteristics in the general town street patterns.
