Description :
Suburbanization processes are modifying the functioning of Cracow's surroundings.Migration flows are changing the demographic and social structure of formerly rural areas, this occurring in relation to infrastructural development and land-use changes. Spatial transformations from rural to urban space are among the most readily measurable ones.Analyses of land-uses changes in selected areas of the two communes, directly adjacent to Cracow, provided and answer to the main research question as to whether the outfitting of suburban areas in infrastructure creates a spatial configuration of other land-use types.The selected communes (local authority areas) of Zabierzow and Michalowice represent different types of outfitting in infrastructure, acting as theoretical spatial configuration determinants.
