DEFINITION
  • area of influence of a city. It is generally delineated on the basis of statistics (for instance commuter flows). Most European States have definitions of Functional Urban Areas or similar concepts, such as travel to-work-areas, commuting catchment areas, commuting zones or functional urban regions. In the context of the ESPON I Programme, an attempt has been made to produce an identification and delineation of functional urban areas (FUA) at European level, using a harmonised statistical definition.
