  • This article has sought to elucidate the difference between the urban agglomeration and the metropolitan area, in the light of the output of Polish urban geography. Special attention is paid to the relationship between the ways of conceiving
  • the above entities in respect of the morphological and functional aspects to a large city’s structure. An overview of cognitive and planning achievements in the field of the delimitation of urban agglomerations and metropolitan areas in Poland is also
  • offered, the primary conclusion from the work being that the metropolis and its metropolitan area, as a concentration of high-order functions and international-scale links, represents a more advanced stage in the development of the large-city settlement
  • system than does the urban agglomeration. - (BJ)

  • a development model for urban areas by bringing together a diverse range of cities around common problems in order to create common understandings of how to address these problems—the new ‘conventional wisdom’. These networks have also developed a range
  • Over the past twenty years urban “networking” has become a rule of behaviour in the European Union. This article concerns the development of urban networks within the European urban geography. Urban networks have an important role in disseminating
  • of different methods “to be active” in order to achieve different territorial outcomes. In that sense, which are the outcomes of those cities that have shown a strong “ aptitude in urban networking ” ? - (BJ)

  • Integrated assessment model of water resources constraint intensity on urbanization in arid area
  • Arid area ; China ; Gansu ; Model ; Urbanization ; Water ; Water resources
  • Based on qualitative and quantitative methods, the AA. constructed an integrated indicator system to assess the status of water resources and urbanization system in arid area, and established an AHP model reformed by entropy technology to evaluate
  • the temporal and spatial variations of water resources constraint intensity on urbanization. This model is applied to the Hexi Corridor, a typical arid area in NW China. Results show that, water resources constraint intensity on urbanization in the Hexi
  • is an effective method to analyze the conflicts between water resources and urbanization system in arid area.
  • and urbanization system, the Hexi Corridor can still promote water resources sustainable utilization and accelerate the urbanization process. This study suggests that the integrated assessment model of water resources constraint intensity on urbanization

  • Using the example of Rzeszów, the capital of Podkarpackie region, the AA. delimit the strength, character and directions of impact of a capital of a semi-peripheral region. Basing their reasoning on the research of the range of the daily urban
  • system, a zone of strongest influence and metropolitan effects of Rzeszów was delimited. Next, the dynamics of change in the level of life and the level of development of municipalities in the zone as compared to other areas of the Podkarapackie region
  • were measured. Though as demonstrated by research results, within the area of strong spatial influence of Rzeszów positive spread effects dominate, metropolitan functions in the city’s hinterland are weakly developed. - (BJ)

  • N-S and W-E were outlined along highways. A precise location for urbanized area, like city center and sub-center, could be identified by multiple landscape metrics. Multiple adjunctive centers occurred as indicated by analysis of radiation zones
  • Based on 4 land-cover type maps interpreted from remote sensing TM images of 1990, 1995, 2000 and 2005, combining gradient analysis with landscape metrics, the quantified spatial pattern and its dynamics of urbanization in Guangzhou was got. Three
  • landscape metrics were computed within different regional areas including the whole study area, two transects along two highways (one N-S and the other W-E) and radiation zones with equal distance outwards the city center were set. Buffer zones for transects
