Mechanistic models for the 2009 influenza pandemic in the United States have so far integrated only geographic great-circle distances between locations to model the spatial dynamics. However, it makes sense to consider different distance metrics that represent actual human movement better, such as distances and times for driving, walking and public transport. Statistical analysis and model selection techniques are used with high-resolution disease onset data to evaluate the relevance of these metrics, and when they should be considered in general.
