Title

Development of settlement systems: From ideas on centrality to dispersion

 

Abstract

The problem of settlement systems development includes spatial as well as temporal components. The method of responding to the questions of settlement systems’ development on the national and regional level of any country is becoming more and more complex. The core of the article presents cognition and comprehension of existing settlement patterns, the main purpose of these processes being the formulation of guidelines for their future development. Identification of particular settlement pattern elements, which are researched as spatial phenomena, are stressed (morphologic analysis of settlement patterns). Six different settlement patterns, selected from different European countries (Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Croatia), are presented for the purpose of comparison and additional argumentation. Some solutions for future development guidance of settlement systems’ in the growingly complex relations within developed societies have been presented in the conclusion.
