HUMAN SETTLEMENT PATTERNS: RURAL, URBAN, AND SUBURBAN
Transcript of HUMAN SETTLEMENT PATTERNS: RURAL, URBAN, AND SUBURBAN
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Newer communities found at the edges of established cities.
Have increased because of transportation routes and means (also the need for residential areas in urban developments).
CHARACTERISTICS OF URBAN SETTLEMENTS
Large population (exceeds 1000 persons) and high population density
A lot of tall buildings including residential, commercial, and industrial.
Little open space
Transportation routes (highways)
Competition between land use
Land rent is high
CHARACTERISTICS OF SUBURBAN SETTLEMENTS
Transportation to urban area
Residential area (housing developments) and some commercial
Area just outside of the urban area.
CHARACTERISTICS OF RURAL SETTLEMENTS
Low population (below 1000 persons)
A community where 1000 or more people live close together.
High density of human-created structures.
Created, and further developed, by the process of
physical growth of urban areas (increasing number of people living in an area).
Sparsely populated/settled areas.
Rural areas usually have a population of fewer than 1000 people and include farms and small communities.
