Transport systems, the vital arteries of modern societies and economies, shape our world and are shaped by it. The subject of this volume is the dynamic interactions between transport and the physical, economic, and human geographies it weaves through. Transport plays a central role in economic development and growth. It profoundly affects the socio-economic characteristics and spatial form of urban centres and rural areas alike. A new transport link can bring increases in population, in employment, in industrial activity, in wealth. In turn, these changes can lead to demands for further transport improvements. All these factors are explored in the section on Transport and Spatial Form. Sections on Land-use/Transportation Modelling and Data then discuss how to obtain appropriate data and model these transport-geographic phenomena. The past decade has seen substantial research efforts devoted to improving transport modelling techniques, and the state of the art is described here. GIS and GPS are powerful technologies with a wide range of potential applications in this field, in which great advances have been made in recent years. Each therefore has a whole section devoted to it, both to established applications and to those yet to be fully exploited. While all these and the section on Network Analysis may be regarded as core areas, topics on the frontiers are also covered in this comprehensive volume, with sections on Spatial Cognition, GeoSimulation, and Time Use. Each chapter was specially commissioned from an acknowledged world expert on its topic. Each offers an overview and useful insights to those familiar with the area as well as those new to it. Systematic and thorough in its creation, current and accessible in its content, and authoritative and international in its authorship, the "Handbook of Transport Geography and Spatial Systems" will be the definitive reference work on this important subject.

Book Description:

Each chapter was specially commissioned from an acknowledged world expert on its topic.

Review:

Spatial systems and transportation are creatively linked and reviewed in this new handbook covering classical and frontier topics ... The editors and authors have done a great service in delivering a major resource for the transportation, planning and geographical disciplines." - William L. Garrison, University of California, Berkeley, USA.
"The volume edited by Kingsley Haynes and by Peter Stopher together with the series editors, Ken Button and David Hensher gathers many prominent experts in transport geography and spatial systems. From my perspective as a transportation geographer, I am especially pleased to see the inclusion of chapters by such influential geographers as Susan Hanson, William Black, and Harvey Miller. I also applaud the inclusion of cross-cutting topics such as edge cities, space-time processes, hub networks, network equilibration, and environmental justice. This is a timely and important edited collection." - Morton O'Kelly, Professor and Chair, Department of Geography, The Ohio State University.

"Edited by several leading figures and with contributions from a group of experts in the field, this handbook is a superb and most up-to-date source in transport geography and spatial system. It will serve as an authoritative reference for educators, researchers, planners, practitioners, and students for many years to come." - Benjamin Zhan, Texas State University, USA.
.,."the book gives a good grounding of transport geography that most people will be able to understand"
--P. Broughton, TOURISM MANAGMENT, Oct 2006
.,."this volume belongs ot shelves at libraries of universities and research institutions as a reference work."
--Henk Meurs, EJTIR, 6, no. 4 (2005), pp. 373-376
