The New Zealand urban system

Abstract:

New Zealand's role in the world economic system is as a highly efficient producer of primary products, notably from its pastoral industries but also increasingly from its native and exotic forests. It is, however, an urban coun-try. The majority of its population live in towns and cities; some 74 per cent at present live in places with populations exceeding 1000. Approximately one-fifth of the country's three million residents live in its largest metropolitan area, Auckland, whose population is growing at around three per cent annu-ally; a further 22 per cent live in the other three large urban complexes — Wellington/Hutt, Christchurch and Dunedin.Statistical data for urban areas in New Zealand are truly representative of the country's metropoli and major provincial centres; below this level, they refer only to the, often-out-dated, administrative units.

Changes in settlement patterns as a result of urbanization in Spain

Manuel Ferrer Regales

Geographia Polonica (1978) vol. 39, pp. 143-158 | Full text

Further information

Abstract:

In Spain a network of cities is not integrated into any contiguous system of urban interactions which in turn would integrate all the regional areas: national integration is achieved at the political-administrative level only, via the nation's capital, Madrid, and at the economic and financial decision-mak-ing level via Madrid/Barcelona and Bilbao. There exist networks of cities which are integrated into contiguous urban systems. These coincide especial-ly with the areas of the periphery which are developed, or undergoing a rapid development process; here we can speak of several regional systems. Madrid is an 'original' system which occupies the geographical centre of the Iberian Peninsula.

The interrelations between the Basque-Periphery, Catalonian, and Ara-gonese systems are high, due to industrial flows. They are also high between the Catalonian and Valencian-Levantine systems. In turn, interrelations be-tween these systems and Madrid are also high although the structure is not peripheral, but radial. There are some interrelations between peripherical systems, but the whole periphery has strong connections with the national capital.
