About this book

The focus of this book is the modeling of the location of economic activities, measured in terms of employment, in land-use and transportation systems. These measures are key inputs to models at intra-urban scales of the flows of persons and goods for both urban and transport planning. The models described here are either components of comprehensive models or specialist studies. Economic activities can be defined in terms of jobs or private-sector firms and public service organisations. Different levels of aggregation are used both in terms of organisational and geographical dimensions. In the case of firms and public organizations, a distinction can be made between the organizations themselves and corresponding establishments. For urban simulation models, it is the location of establishments that is important. At the more coarse levels of aggregation that are usually used in comprehensive models, firms and organizations are aggregated into sectors.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book constitutes a highly welcome addition to the literature concerned with the modeling of the spatial distribution of employment. … The volume also stands out in the ways in which the various chapters combine detailed descriptions of particular models with their applications to specific cities or regions, thus making the book an interesting read for those with a focus on the design of comprehensive employment location models as well as those rather concerned with their applications in different contexts.” (Kristin Kronenberg, Journal of Regional Science, Vol. 54 (2), March, 2014)
