Delineating Daily Activity Spaces in Rural Areas
Keane, Michael J.
The new relational geography challenges notions of inherently coherent, integrated `territory-based' systems of relations. This paper uses network methods and correspondence analysis to try and describe some of the spatial differentiation and relational dynamics at three different rural sites. The particular focus is on delineating the daily activity spaces of households and to describe the central-place roles of local centres. The methods used do help us to capture some aspects of the differences that exist in work, shopping and social relations and the spaces that these relations fill. The implications of the findings for local planning and administration are also discussed. Key Words: daily activity spaces, network methods, correspondence analysis, central places.
