The dominating position of the profiling factories in the region complexes

Ludvík Mištera

The geography of the factories examines the space-effects of the factories and the effect of production units dislocated in the region, belonging to the elementary complex. On the basis of the territorial analysis of the region complex of the western Krušné hory Mountains, the industries may be regarded as the basic and profiling in the specialization of the region complex, or of its subregion, respectively. These factories are a significant factor forming both the towns, and the region. Their position enables us, on the basis of other theoretical methods, to generalize and to state the rules of their functions and influences.
