The course is the second part of "Systèmes territoriaux I" course. Object of analysis is Switzerland and the scale of analysis is the regional scale.

Content

Switzerland can be represented as a territorial system. That requires a positioning of analysis within the natural environment on the one hand; to identify its levels of geographical organisation, centres of activity, networks and spatial organisation on the other. After a general introduction, the module addresses first the principle geographical issues for Alpine Switzerland and secondly the study of the structure and dynamics of Swiss towns and metropolitan areas.
