Patrick here from the Geographic Data Science Lab (Liverpool, UK). I am thrilled to present the first paper of my PhD: ‘A framework for delineating the scale, extent and characteristics of American retail centre agglomerations’, available (open-access) at SAGE Journals: Your gateway to world-class journal research. In the paper, using the SafeGraph core places dataset, we extract the spatial extent of retail centres in the Chicago Metro area, and construct a non-hierarchical typology that summarises their key characteristics. We then utilise the centres (and typology) together with weekly patterns data to investigate the response of centres during the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic! Check out the figure below
We are currently working on a follow-up project ‘The Who, What and Where of American Retail Centre Geographies’, which you can check out at: GitHub - patrickballantyne/USRetailCentres: Centres, Characteristics and Catchments of American Retail Centre Agglomerations.
HUGE thanks to SafeGraph for providing the data, which has been invaluable for my PhD research- you guys are awesome! :safegraph:
