Human behaviour and activities in geographical environment: analysis and modelling of the organisation of space
2014 – 2015 Project IGA Palacký University number IGA_PrF_2014012
The project is generally aimed at manifestations of human behaviour and activities in geographical environment with respect to the issue of organisation of space. Within this quite extensive problem the project address in detail three topics: analysis of daily movements of the population in the Czech Republic, modelling of selected life rhythms of the population in urban and suburban environment, and analysis of anthropogenic impacts on selected components of the natural environment and cultural landscape. Each topic applies particularly quantitative methods of geographical research (regional taxonomy, spatial interaction modelling, analysis in GIS environment, field measurements). The involvement of students of geographical disciplines in the research work is an important part of the project.
