Unformatted text preview: Hägerstrand model of diffusion-model of contagious expansion diffusion, studied diffusion of farm subsidy-grow certain things, innovation-farmers adopted, some didn’t: Whoa dopts from innovator and where they are located. Diffusion shows distance decay patterns, some adopt early, late, later, introduced monte carlo modeling; Monte Carlo modeling-randomness of gambling, modeling that incorporates rand om process modeling; isotropic plain-flat, isolated-can move in any direction easily, ppl who adopt innovation are culturally uniform; “mean information field” (MIF); modifying assumptions of Hägerstrand model – 1 isotropic plain- flat, isolated-can move in any direction easily, ppl who adopt innovation are culturally uniform; 2-contacts are identical-hears about innovation; 3 distance decay- contacts are most likely to be close by, contacts far away aren’t impossible, but less likely...
