Spatial Analysis of Industrial Development in Kirkuk District

Abstract

Spatial development policies, through the adoption of proper planning, play a prominent and influential role in determining the pattern of the geographical distribution of industrial areas within the spatial space of the geographical region, and then developing the levels of spatial development and their spatial variation. Therefore, the subject of the study (Spatial Analysis of Industrial Development in Kirkuk District) came to reveal the nature of the existing reality of industrial development, by highlighting its geographical characteristics (Natural and Human) to determine the development possibilities available for the settlement of industrial activities in the district and the extent of their contribution to the development of spatial development levels as well as their role In determining the future picture that will be industrial development in the study area, as the geographical development potential in terms of its quality, economic size, geographical distribution and availability is of great importance and a fundamental basis for achieving spatial development, and therefore the process of industrial development is based on three dimensions in general are (*):First Dimension: It is represented in the size of the economic resources of both kinds (natural and human): and it emphasizes the interaction of the spatial relations that link the phenomena and form the distributive patterns of the industry in the geographical regions.Second Dimension: It is represented by (the time dimension), i.e., the time that the development process requires in order to be able to achieve its goals.Third Dimension: the spatial dimension, which cannot be centered on development without a spatial container that contains it, in order to leave its effects in the surrounding environment in varying degrees and varying levels according to the qualifications of the place in which it is endemic.
