Abstract

Identical procedures of multivariate techniques can be used to derive an optimal regionalization in two classificatory approaches, that of homogeneity leading to uniform or formal regions and that of nodality or polarization leading to organizatorial or functional regions. This observation led the author to integrate the two concepts to the general field theory. The theory provides an understanding of the multifacted relationships between commodity flows and spatial structure. The essay focusses on the basic concept of the general field theory, the numerical taxonomy combining factor and dimensional analysis and the canonical analysis for making the theory operational. The paper is a revised and extended version of B. J. L. Berry: Essays on commodity flows and spatial structure of the Indian economy. Department of Geogr. Research Paper 111, Chicago 1966, p. 189-201.
