Defining the Region Seminar

On the 9th September CASA hosted a seminar discussing relationships between London and the South East region with a view to developing the most appropriate framework for land use transport modelling.

Mike Batty introduced the SCALE and ARCADIA projects; Duncan Smith discussed journey-to-work and business relationships in the South East; Basak Ozkul presented on changes in travel patterns over the last thirty years; Jon Reades showed how communication flows can be used to analyse business specialisations; and finally Joan Serras presented a network analysis methodology for the SCALE project.
