GGR124 Lecture 2 (January 19, 2011)
Urban places can be defined using a variety of different criteria
Population minimum size of settlement or agglomeration; minimum
density; relying on population alone can be problematic
Economic base minimum proportion of the labour force in non-agricultural
occupations
Administrative using some legal or administrative criteria; but comparative
research is difficult; physical and social extent of the city can extend far
beyond the administrative responsibility (people could work in one area but
commute from a different area)
Functional reflect the real extent of the urban influence; census data
expressed in terms of functional definition; Census Metropolitan Area (CMA)
is bigger than the administrative area (Toronto includes Mississauga,
Markham, Vaughn, etc)
Understanding Urban Geography
Understand/interpret the distribution of towns and cities
Account for the differences and similarities between them and within them
Two key themes: spatial distribution of towns and cities (system of cities);
internal structure of the city (city as a system)
Discipline is eclectic
Approaches to Urban Geography
Environmentalism
1.Dominant up to the mid-20th century
2.Relationship between people and their environment
3.Site and situation studies physical characteristics determine
urban development
4.Urban morphology how urban areas have grown and changed over
time

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
