Relational Geography

If geography is not composed of places, but rather places are the result of relations, then how can an understanding of complex flows and network dynamics help us unravel the nature of place?

taxonomy/feature.php

Relational Geographers examine how particular places are constituted by forces and flows that operate at a distance. They recognize that flows of energy, people, resources and materials are what activate place, and focus their attention upon understanding the nature of these flows.

    Network theory allows us think about how the dynamics of agent interactions in a complex system can affect the performance of that system.

    Network theory is a huge topic in and of itself, and can be looked at on its own, or in relation to complex systems. There are various formal, mathematical ways of studying networks, as well as looser, more fluid ways of understanding how networks can serve as a structuring mechanism.
