Areas of attraction of industrial centres in CSR

Jaroslav Mareš

In a short paper the author treats of tbe investigation results of regional structure of industry in CSR carried out by the Geographical Institute of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. The analysis based on the data stating the number of people using some means of transport to get to their work, showed that the extent of what is called the areas of attraction of industrial centres does not depend so much upon their size as upon their geographical position. Since their stability shows to be of long standing, it is important for regional planning. The enclosed map illustrates the extent, variety, intensity of gravitation and the degree of influence exerted by industry upon the hinterland of industrial centres in CSR.
