Interações espaciais no Estado de São Paulo: uma análise comparativa entre dois tipos de redes


  • Teresa Mavignier de Andrade Ramos UFRJ; Programa de Pós-Graduação em Geografia



The diffusion of modern technology has changed the world of social relationships, in which interactions were once limited by one's surroundings, a space caracterized above all by physical continuity. Until the last century, the conception of space strongly linked with physical distance of routes has prevailed, imposing local boundaries for the use of space by human action. The experience of circulation in a space built by remote and well connected points, enables social relationships to be established in an environment characterized for the most part by physical discontinuity. This paper analyses the complex and well developed urban network of São Paulo State, considering two components: the interurban bus flows, whose materiality incorporates the cost of physical distance in terms of time; and the telephone flows, which with its instantaneous conection allows the potential interaction among all the cities independently of the physical distance among them.
