Employment Location in Cities and Regions

employment locations

CASA's Professor Sir Alan Wilson is co-editor of a newly published book, 'Employment Locations in Cities and Regions: Models and Applications', published by Springer. The focus of this book is the modelling of the location of economic activities, measured in terms of employment, in land-use and transportation systems. These measures are key inputs to models at intra-urban scales of the flows of persons and goods for both urban and transport planning. The models described here are either components of comprehensive models or specialist studies. At the more coarse levels of aggregation that are usually used in comprehensive models, firms and organizations are aggregated into sectors.
