Regional Environmental Center, and the city of Turku) comes from the synergy benefits that they get for their GI operations – especially for data sharing, networking, and augmented professional competence. The two participating universities, in turn, are motivated by their interest in SDI-related research and education as well as the internship and job possibilities available to their graduates. Our analysis first offers a retrospective narrative of the overall development of the Lounaispaikka-SDI from its initiation to the present form. As source materials, we used

of the nature of the political landscape and how political and social changes occur ( Heywood, 2007 ). Studies on voting pattern in Nigeria have often been fixated on which party electorates voted for or prefer (e.g., Ihonvbere, 1999 ; Araba, Braimah, 2015 ; Olasile, Adebayo, 2016 ; Lawal, 2017 ). While this approach reveals where parties won elections, equally important is how homogeneous voters’ choices are in different places. Here, homogeneity refers to similarity of voter choice in different places. In a geographical sense, the analysis of homogeneity of

consequences of this, but the socio-economic status of the inhabitants was also affected. Łódź is the third largest city in Poland and is in the midst of infrastructural and social revitalisation. However, issues arising from its post-industrial past are still visible in the economic status of the city and its inhabitants. The unique blend of its exceptional location within Poland and the problems described above makes the city of Łódź an interesting subject for travel behaviour analysis. 4 Material and research methods The empirical research is based on the dataset

inputted into the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 17.0 for analysis. Descriptive, bivariate and multivariate statistical techniques were all employed for the data analysis. ArcMap 10 software was employed to generate a map of the study area/residential types while Excel software (2003 version) was adopted to plot the gender distribution, sources of water and households’ access to water in the study area. Descriptive statistics was used to examine the measure of location, and bivariate statistics helped to establish the interdependence of the

This market mechanism has a cardinal public ownership system, which has ushered in an era of unprecedented progress ( Perkins, 2008 ; Huang, 2008 ). Past studies have indicated that China’s gross domestic product (GDP) advanced by an average of 9.3% each year from 1978 to 2015 (NBS, China 2016). This has
