transport, regionalization, local and regional development, spatial interactions, mobility, spatial differentiation, transport geographical analysis
Regional differentiation of the transport system. Sociogeographic regionalization and its relation to transport. Transport and local and regional development. Spatial interaction - theoretical and methodological framework. Mobility research - travel behavior, mode choice and the influence onto "modal-split." Modal competition. Practical use of transport-geographical analysis in transportation planning.
The aim is to introduce students to the transport-geography issues in particular in relation to transport planning. In addition to acquiring theoretical knowledge a part of the course also deals with the basic methods of transport geography research (e. g. regionalization, measurement of accessibility, regional transport service, and mode choice).
