Threshold: is the minimum number of people needed to support a service. Rural areas – may have a lower threshold for some services than urban areas Would the best fit line go through the origin? How many people needed before any services are offered?
Access to services varies – several factors affect this.
Range: this can mean the maximum distance people are prepared to travel to access a service. Diversity: this can mean the variety of different types of service offered in a settlement.
????? clustered random linear regular Motorway service stations High street banks in a town Primary schools in a large town ?? Swimming pools in Powys ?? Describing Distributions
Pattern - Reason Motorway service stations have a regular and linear pattern …… so that their customers can stop at regular intervals along the motorway for fuel or a rest. High-street banks are clustered in the centre of town … … because they attract their customers from a large catchment area so they need a prominent location in the centre of town. Primary schools are distributed quite regularly throughout a large town …… so that every young child has a primary school that is easily accessible from their home.
