WAYS TO MOVE. THE GEOGRAPHY OF NETWORKS AND ACCESSIBILITY
This book concentrates mainly on the structure within which movement takes place; that is, the networks and modes of transport and their influence on the spatial quality of locations. Examples and exercises are taken from a variety of situations in the UK and abroad, and used to develop ideas and techniques which can be applied to transport and communication studies in any area. Separate chapters deal with: (1) an introduction to movement; (2) branching networks; (3) the development of networks; (4) the use of networks and modes of transport, and (5) accessibility.
