Places and students in urban environment: A time-geographical perspective
Rok, strany: 2010, 33 - 47
urban environment, time-geography, stations, students, city of Olomouc
The article analyses places of concentration (in time-geography referred to as “stations”) of university students in the city of Olomouc. It is a part of research into the effects the changing urban environment exerts on the spatio-temporal behaviour of the selected population segments, students being one of them. The article is primarily concerned with stations, their spatial distribution, functions, daily regime and perception. The input data were gained through the time-space activity budgets filled in by students in the period of one week. The achieved results on the one hand corroborated general time-geographical concepts and schemes, on the other hand they also proved the importance of the new phenomena, such as shopping malls, in the inner city structure in the daily paths of the university students and thus in the distribution of the stations within the city. However, there still remains a need to carry out similar research on different populations and in different urban environments in order to refine and support our conclusions by comparison of the achieved results.
