“World cities are not simply the world’s largest … cities. Rather, they are the control centers for the global economy, places where critical decision making and interaction take place with regard to global economic, cultural, and political issues” (Knox and Marston 2001, p. 426). “WORLD CITIES”

Urban Economic Geography Central Place Theory Urban Land Use/Development/Downtowns Redevelopment World Cities Hypothesis & Network

21
CENTRAL PLACE THEORY aka CPT ok

22
What is it? A basic theory describing size distribution of urban locations based upon these locations providing goods and services

23
Who is Christaller?

24
Walter Christaller, a German geographer, originally proposed the Central Place Theory (CPT) in 1933 (trans. 1966). Christaller was studying the urban settlements in Southern Germany and advanced this theory as a means of understanding how urban settlements evolve and are spaced out in relation to each other.

25
Terms Hinterland – Area where a city is the dominant producer of a particular good or service Field of Influence – Any location where a city has influence Centrality – Amount of draw to a particular place

26
Terms Consumer Range – Distance a consumer will travel for a particular good or service Threshold – Minimum population needed to keep a business in operation Hierarchy of market centers - Settlements range in size from large cities - with many services to smaller villages and towns with some services, to small hamlets - which offer few services.

27
Order of Goods High Order 1. High Price 2. Low Frequency of Purchase 3. High Threshold 4. Large Consumer Range Low Order 1. Low Price 2. High Frequency of Purchase 3. Low Threshold 4. Small Consumer Range

28
Order of Places ® The higher order of goods offered the higher order of the place ® Higher order places are more widely spread out ® Hierarchy development

29
Assumptions 1. There is an unbounded uniform plain on which there is equal ease of transport in all directions. Transport costs are proportional to distance and there is only one type of transport.

30
Assumptions 2. Population is evenly distributed over the plain.

31
Assumptions 3. Central places (settlements) are located on the plain to provide goods, services, and administrative functions to their hinterlands. Examples of these are hardware shops (goods), dry cleaners (services), and town planning departments (administrative).

32
Assumptions 4. Consumers minimize the distance to be travelled.

33
Assumptions 5. The suppliers of these functions act as economic [agents]; that is, they attempt to maximize their profits by locating on the plain to obtain the largest possible market. Since people visit the nearest center, suppliers will locate as far away from one another as possible so as to maximize their market areas.

34
Assumptions 6. It is assumed that these higher order centres supply certain functions (higher order functions) which are not offered by lower order centres. They also provide all the functions (lower order functions) that are provided in lower order centres.[i.e., you can still buy bread and milk in NYC, but international airports do not exist in smaller towns and cities, like Jersey City.]

35
Assumptions 7. All consumers have the same income and the same demand for goods and services.

36
Relax Assumptions: 1. Population income variation--wealthy vs. non-wealthy areas, wealthy areas do not usually need as large of a threshold 2. Variation in transport surfaces 3. Consumer Behaviour/Individual Preferences 4. Profits

37
Shape of Hinterlands The model in CPT is explained using geometric shapes, such as hexagons and triangles

40
Is Central Place Theory applicable in the real world or is it just a theory? Any contemporary real world examples of the patterns seen in CPT? There are, however, some near perfect examples of Christaller’s theory to be found in the Canadian prairies and the Netherlands. Also Iowa and Wisconsin.

41
A GENERAL GRAPH CONCERNING FUNCTIONS !

42
Why doesn’t this always work? -Large areas of flat land rarely exist -Transport has changed since his day -People/wealth are not evenly distributed -Folks don’t always choose the central place! -Purchasing power/needs not all the same -Governments have control over location of industry/towns -Perfect competition = unreal -Places don’t stay the same forever -Does not fit industrial areas

43
Market, - city, town, village, hamlet Market area / hinterland

44
Consumers near center obtain services from local establishments. The closer to the periphery the greater the % of customers who will chose to obtain services from other nodes (cities). People are equally likely to use the service, or go elsewhere.

45
Fast Food McDonald’s According to your text book McDonald’s has a range of 3 miles. The typical threshold is 10,000 people.

Do Due #62 Do Now What is a primate city? How does it differ from the Rank-Size Rule?... You damn dirty ape Due Today Nothing

58
Rank-Size Rule

59
Definition: Relatively developed societies produce a pattern in the size of their cities according to a mathematical formula.

60
“ Ideal ” line

62
U.S. Line - 2007

63
How does the U.S. Compare?

64
PRIMATE CITIES In less developed countries/regions the largest city is overly large. The pattern of settlements is such that the largest settlement has more than twice as many people as the second largest settlement.

76
Why do we care? -Interesting math! -Countries that have good rank-size distribution improve the quality of life of their citizens. A regular hierarchy (USA) indicates that a society is wealthy enough to provide services for its people. -Absence of rank-size means people may struggle to access large urban settlements, thus high level services like hospitals.

77
Gravity Model

78
What is the gravity model? A model that holds that the potential use of a service at a particular location is directly related to the number of people in a location and inversely related to the distance people must travel to reach the service. It can be put into a formula: Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2

79
What does the gravity model do? It predicts spatial interaction. Spatial interaction: Daily commuting, e-mail, travel, international trade. Remember Ullman’s theory

80
Ullman’s Theory Chicago Travel Patterns: shows 96% of all trips. What factors influence and create these patterns of interaction?

81
Edward Ullman’s Theory Spatial Interaction is controlled by three flow-determining factors. Complementarity Transferability Intervening Opportunity A – Canadian rural cash economy B – Canadian older Mennonite sect

82
What does the Gravity Model Illustrate? It illustrates that spatial interaction in not based solely upon distance because it also incorporates population as a factor as well.

83
What kind of model is the Gravity Model?

84
What kind of model? Mathematical. Interaction between two places is directly proportional to the sizes of their populations and inversely proportional to the distance separating them.

85
Illustrate the gravity model… I Home J

86
Which has a greater bond? NYC and Los Angeles or El Paso and Tucson. Use the gravity model.

87
Example: El Paso, Texas and Tucson, Arizona. El Paso population 703,127. Tucson population 790,755. Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2

88
Example: El Paso, Texas and Tucson, Arizona. El Paso population 703,127. Tucson population 790,755. The distance between the two is 263 miles Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2

89
Example: El Paso, Texas and Tucson, Arizona. El Paso population 703,127. Tucson population 790,755. Equals 556,001,190,885. The distance between the two is 263 miles. 263 miles squared = 69,169 Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2

90
Example: Population - Equals 556,001,190,885. The distance between the two is 263 miles. 263 miles squared = 69,169 Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2 The math works out to 8,038,300

91
Example: NYC metropolitan population 20,124,377. LA metro population 15,781,273. Distance 2462 miles. Population 1 X Population 2 distance 2 Do the math…

92
Example: NYC metropolitan population 20,124,377. LA metro population 15,781,273. Distance 2462 miles. 317,588,287,391,921 6,061,444 Do the math…

93
Example: NYC metropolitan population 20,124,377. LA metro population 15,781,273. Distance 2462 miles. 317,588,287,391,921 6,061,444 The result is 52,394,823 Which has the great pull?

94
Questions…. 1. If you were fitting a gravity model for Federal Express package flows between cities, which of the following would be best to substitute for total city population in the gravity model formula? A.number of elderly and children in the city B. square miles covered by the city C.annual steel production of the entire city D.total employment in offices in the entire city
