“Room geography”

December 2, 2006

Room geography (Jakle, Brunn, & Roseman, 1976) uses mapping to study how individuals distribute themselves across a given space.

From: Jakle, J. A., Brunn, S., & Roseman, C. C. (1976). Human spatial behavior: A social geography. North Scituate, MA: Duxbury Press.

A problem in characterizing activity spaces has been in integrating the time and space dimensions into the same analytical framework while maintaining an understandable graphical representation of the space-time geographies.
