1. Discuss the role of human geography in determining at least two problems facing cities 2. Discuss five factors that determine industrial location. Use examples to support your answer in each case. 4. Are location considerations different for primary, secondary, and tertiary industries? 1. Physical problems. One of the physical problems is filtering. Filtering is a process by which social groups move from one residential area to another, leading to changes in the social nature of residential areas. For example, people may move out of the central city as the city grows. Therefore, large homes left behind may be subdivided. Other homes that lack of landlords may not maintain the level quality of the home if collected rent revenue is less than maintenance costs. This will deteriorate the physical condition of buildings and may lead to mass vacancy. The other physical problem is negative equity. Negative equity occurs when the value of an asset used to secure a loan is less than the outstanding balance on the loan. It will cost a compound effect, if one home is abandoned, it may negatively affect the pricing of surrounding homes. It will become a foreclosure and the geography of foreclosure actions also started from those major cities. Cities will also face social problems. Homeless is one of the social problems in cities.
