This title focuses on the evolution of the modelling process and on the new research perspectives in theoretical and applied geography, as well as spatial planning.
In the last 50 years, the achievements of spatial analysis models opened the way to a new understanding of the relationship between society and geographical space. In this book, these models are confronted by the real conditions of territorial prospect, regional dynamism, cultural policy, HMO and spatial segregation. This confrontation takes into account the instability of social behavior and the permanence of partial determinist trajectories.
