Abstract

This paper examines comparatively the impact of information technology on urban spatial structure in the Chicago and Seoul metropolitan regions in an attempt to measure the potential influence of IT on urban form and structure. We analyzed the metropolitan areas to understand ways in which the information technology has influenced the distribution of urban economic activities: concentration or dispersion by examining two aspects of impacts: an attraction effect on a zone (level of activity) and a spillover effect on surrounding areas (distributional effects).
