  • Gerhard Mercator's Maps as a Source of Geographical Knowledge About
           Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Surrounding Countries in the 16th
           Century

    • Authors: Mirko Grčić
      Pages: 1 - 34
      Abstract: The author considers the issue of the conceptualization of the geographical space that is known today as the Western Balkans on Gerhard Mercator's maps from the second half of the 16th century, from which, even in cases of incorrect cartographic representations, it is possible to conclude about the changes of certain geographical objects and phenomena in the past time. Two Mercator maps were analysed: Sclavonia, Croatia, Bosnia cum Dalmatiae parte, and Walachia, Servia, Bvlgaria, Romania, both from 1589. The characteristics, symbols and context of Mercator's cartographic representations of relief, hydrography, settlements and other geographical phenomena are discussed. Special attention was paid to the cartographic registration of river courses and settlements. The distortion of surfaces and wrong representations in the positioning of some geographical objects were pointed out, which should be taken into account when identifying individual toponyms on Mercator's maps. The author tries to reconstruct the meaning of toponyms and determine the deviations of the cartographic perception from the actual distribution of the elements of the geographical space, as well as the causes that caused these deviations. The author also gives an overview of toponyms in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and surrounding countries and identifies their modern meaning. The study of Mercator's maps is of interest today for researchers of the historical geography of the network of settlements and toponymy of the Balkan countries in the 15th and 16th century.Key words: old geographical maps, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Balkans, historical geography, toponymy© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Urban Theories in a Post-Socialist Context

    • Authors: Ivan Ratkaj, Nikola Jocić
      Pages: 35 - 44
      Abstract: Since the collapse of the socialist system, cities in Central Eastern European countries have undergone dynamic transformation processes. Those processes have attracted noteworthy scientific attention, particularly in local academic circles, causing revived interest in urban studies in the region. However, the academic interest in former socialist cities has become the centre of discussion itself. This interest is mostly related to the validity of theories and methodologies born in the West to the study of former socialist cities. On one side, there is a cohort of academics who have uncritically embraced Western urban knowledge, a priori assuming its universal applicability. This research position is commonly related to the developmental and convergence theories, which take “correction” of the post-socialist cities and their eventual assimilation to the Western city as their model. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the post-colonial approach has developed as a stand which criticizes the alleged scientific hegemonism of the West and insists on a more cosmopolitan urban science that would take into account the experiences of cities worldwide. Simultaneously, this approach advocates for considering urban particularities and complexities, and thus this research treats post-socialist cities as distinctive, in many instances, from the cities of the West, as well as from each other. However, as both contemporary academic stands have their limits and flaws, the debate on adequate research of former socialist cities as well as on the future positions of urban science in general, is far from conclusive.Key words: urban theory, Western knowledge, post-socialist city, post-colonial approach© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Micrometeorogical Measurements and Biometeorogical Survey in Different
           Urban Settings of Novi Sad (Serbia)

    • Authors: Milica Vasić, Dragan Milošević, Stevan Savić, Dajana Bjelajac, Daniela Arsenović, Jelena Dunjić
      Pages: 45 - 66
      Abstract: Due to rapid urbanisation, urban microclimate research has become increasingly popular in the last decade. Significant variation in microclimate conditions can be created due to diversity in urban geometry and it can affect outdoor thermal comfort. Biometeorological measurements and survey were conducted in different urban settings (square, park, street) of the city of Novi Sad during a warm autumn day in October 2019. Air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and globe temperature, but also outdoor thermal comfort indices such as Mean Radiant Temperature (Tmrt) and Physiological Equivalent Temperature (PET) were obtained for each location. The largest differences in the biometeorological conditions are noticed between the urban park and other urban areas. The maximum average value of Ta was at the city square with 27.9 oC, while in the urban park and street Ta were about 25 oC. The values of RH were the lowest at the city square. Globe temperature (Tg) had the highest values, on average, at the city square (about 40 oC), while the average values in the urban park and street were about 26–28 oC. The highest average PET values are registered at the city square (41.4 oC), followed by substantially lower average PET registered in urban park (27.1 oC) and urban street canyon (26.2 oC). The analysis showed that during about 70% of the time, urban dwellers experience extreme heat stress at the city square. Contrary to that, no extreme heat stress is noticed in urban park and street canyon.Keywords: thermal comfort, biometeorological measurements, biometeorological survey, urban park, Novi Sad, Serbia© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Spatio-Temporal Patterns of Flooded Areas in the Lower Part of the Sana
           River Basin (Bosnia and Herzegovina)

    • Authors: Marko Ivanišević, Stevan Savić, Dragoslav Pavić, Slobodan Gnjato, Tatjana Popov
      Pages: 67 - 82
      Abstract: Floods are the most frequent and devastating natural hazard event in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The detected increase in extreme precipitation over the study area in the last period has altered flood event patterns due to climate changes. Higher frequency of flood events and lack of flood protection infrastructure has a severe impact on socio-economic sectors and natural ecosystems. This paper focuses on the identification of flooded areas for each single flooding event in the lower part of the Sana river basin during the period 2016-2020. For delineating flooded areas, both radar and optical satellite imagery were used. Data obtained after processing remote sensing images were overlaid with a detailed land cover map in order to get insight into flooded land cover types. From temporal aspects, floods are most common during the spring season. They are usually caused by rapid snowmelt and prolonged excessive precipitation. Considering spatial aspects, flooded areas vary from 110 to 522 hectares in the study area. Over 95% of the flooded areas are arable land, meadows and pastures. Most affected settlements by floods are urban and suburban area of Prijedor, Gomjenica, Hambarine, Rakovčani, Rizvanovići, Brezičani, Donja Dragotinja, Vitasavci, Svodna, Blagaj Rijeka and urban area of Novi Grad. The applied methodological approach represents a starting point for further investigation of flooded areas in the Sana basin and data obtained by this analysis can be used in water management, spatial planning and emergency planning.Key words: flooded areas, remote sensing, climate change, Sana river© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Perspective of Sustainable Development in the Functional Area of Nodal
           Centres of Zlatibor District

    • Authors: Zoran Gvozden Milošević, Sanja Radosav Raščanin
      Pages: 83 - 106
      Abstract: The concept of sustainable development in the functional area of the network of the most important settlements is based on the dependence on the settlement environment as well as the development of the entire settlement system in the Zlatibor district. The assessment of the functional development of nodal centres and their impact on the sustainable socioeconomic transformation of other settlements through integrative-incentive mechanisms is based on: the dominant role of nodal settlements as a geospatial factor in the sustainable development of the settlement system of the Zlatibor district; structural and demographic changes within the socioeconomic area; complementarities with settlement specificities; development needs of functional centres; integration into the spatial system of nodal settlements of Serbia; manifestations of differentiated planning and research into the sustainable development of complex geospatial entities. Based on the functional-process approach, the concept of sustainable development of the settlement system was formulated based on the following foundations: elements of the settlement system formed on the basis of spatial-geographical conditions; the main areas of population concentration are urban environments; the high conditionally of the socioeconomic development of the settlement system based on the gravitational-encouraging and polarizing effects of the influence of nodal settlements; from the process of redistribution within the active population, settlement-functional concentration and the development of other settlements result.Key words: sustainable development, nodal centres, urban cores, daily urban system© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Going Round in Circles: Increasing Status of Teacher Occupation in
           Kazakhstan

    • Authors: Oxana Kirichok
      Pages: 107 - 120
      Abstract: Teachers as an essential part of education system contribute crucially to its quality, moreover, the status of teaching profession indicates how the society values the education.  The article provides a critical discourse analysis of the Program for Education Development 2011-2020 with regards to improvement of status of teaching profession in Kazakhstan. The study concentrates on the gaps between the planned and realized outcomes of the Program of Educational Development in Kazakhstan from the point of view of 50 teachers interviewed. The study targeted low qualification of teachers and insufficient oversight of teacher practice as central factors, which lead to low Teacher Status. Focusing on the tension between teachers and policy makers over the teacher status, which remains unchanged, the research revealed the subcourses of law qualification of teachers, identifying low payment, low academic preparation and lack of selectivity of future teachers as subcourses. The article examines the planned and realized outcomes of the initiatives such as launching three level professional training for teachers, issuing vouchers to teachers for their professional development, performance-based payment, increasing enrolment entrance barrier to Pedagogical Universities and teachers’ compulsory attestation once in 5 years, which lead to going round in circles. The implications of the study are in providing new insights on the issue of status of teaching profession and determining the reasons of slow progress in status of teaching profession, which needs further exploration in the global scale.Key words: teacher, status, Kazakhstan, program, education, educational reforms© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Simulation of Mean Monhtly Maximum Temperature in Summer of Northern
           Region, Thailand Using INMCM4.0 Model

    • Authors: Nutthakarn Phumkokrux, Sunisa Saengwat, Patiya Pattanasak, Supaporn Manajitprasert
      Pages: 121 - 132
      Abstract: Project aims to simulate Mean Monthly Maximum Temperature (Tasmax) in summer of Northern, Thailand (2020-2030) using INMCM4.0 Model. Observation data of historical period were gathered from 14 Meteorological Department of Thailand, used to compare to Simulation data of same period to verify the model. Quantile Mapping (QM) was the best statistical downscaling method to predict future Tasmax with the lowest of %MPAE and MAE at 5.29% and ±1.85 oC. Tasmax values were presented in form of map by kriging method then trend changes were calculated by Mann-Kendall trend test and Sen’s slope. The results illustrated that the highest Tasmax was found around left-bottom of the region then fading in the next area to the top. Tasmax was gradually rising from February to May with the most range in hot (35.0 – 39.9 oC) and very hot range (>40 oC). Moreover, trend analysis indicated that the trend of February, March, April, and summer period were fluctuated and obviously increased at +0.111, +0.130, +0.121, and +0.063 oC per year while it was at -0.007 oC per year for May with the lowest and highest Tasmax values at 28.8 and 41.5 oC. This can confirm that the region would have global warming issues in the future.Key words: mean monthly maximum temperature, climate change, temperature rising, global warming, Thailand© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Conceptual model for measuring and predicting residential satisfaction in
           housing-led urban regeneration in post-socialist cities

    • Authors: Ntombifuthi Precious Nzimande
      Pages: 133 - 140
      Abstract: Residential satisfaction is a multi-dimensional concept that is the degree to which residents feel their place of residence helps them achieve their desired goal. The research aims to develop a holistic model that can predict and measure residential satisfaction in regenerated housing in post-socialist cities. The holistic model for residential satisfaction postulates objective and subjective measurements after a brief review of theories and research gaps within the literature. This paper reports on the conceptualization of the model, with findings to validate this model being reported later. It is anticipated that the results of this model will assist key stakeholders to consider variables that are important in ensuring residential satisfaction within post-socialist cities.Key words: residential satisfaction, post-socialist cities, urban regeneration, housing© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Geographical and Component Analysis of the Perception of the Tourism and
           Recreational Space of the Perm Region

    • Authors: Azat Safarian, Evgeny Konyshev
      Pages: 141 - 158
      Abstract: The relevance of this study lies the reassessment of the role that an information plays in the functioning and perception of tourism and recreational space. Tourism and recreational space perceive as global but it has a complex structure, represented in the form of territorial tourism and recreational systems. In a post-industrial society the importance of information for the development of tourism and recreational space is constantly increasing. Oftentimes tourists base on other tourist's information and reviews posted on the Internet, recorded in the form of digital footprints on specialized portals to make a decision to travel. The consumer perceives the tourism and recreational space of the region as a set of reviews and ratings the content of which may be different from the actual parameters of the space. These feedbacks last as a basis for the expectations and impressions formation. The purpose of this study is a component and geographical analysis of the perception of the tourism and recreational space of the Perm region using the method of text analysis of big data. The textual analysis of 5,668 reviews that have posted on the Tripadvisor website was carried out on the PolyAnalyst platform and included the calculation of the sentiment index, the extraction of keywords and the determination of the relationship of terms to define the key attributes of the tourist and recreational space perception. The component analysis of the Perm region's tourism and recreational space perception showed the uneven perception of its individual components and made it possible to identify the most topical problem areas. The assessment of the perception of tourist and recreational space by consumers from different places of residence, as well as the assessment of the territorial features of the perception of individual cities of the Perm region, was carried out using geographical analysis. Additionally, the sentiment index change from 2014 to 2021 was assessed. An analysis of this change made it possible to identify the incipient negative trends at the deterioration of the region's tourism and recreational space perception. The results of the study will be useful for the development of strategic documents on territorial planning and tourism management, improvement of regional tourism products and the image of the region.Key words: tourism and recreational space, Perm region, text analysis, tourists’ reviews, Tripadvisor, PolyAnalyst© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Measuring Inter-Neighborhood Disparities by Tribal Origin and Academic
           Achievement. Case of Bousaâda, Algeria

    • Authors: Saad Thaibaoui, Boudjamea Khalfallah, Hafid Layeb
      Pages: 159 - 172
      Abstract: The phenomenon of inter-neighbourhood disparities is taking on worrying proportions in the city of Boussaâda. The quantitative study of disparities provides us with alarming figures on the social and spatial dimensions. Our research has shown a negative correlation between the indices of residential segregation and school success rates, specifically with a strong residential segregation through the overcrowded peripheral neighbourhoods, and a low level of school facilities. The study of inter-neighbourhood disparities in the city of Boussaâda, affirmed a strong residential segregation with 0.780 as the value of the segregation index and ghettos evaluated at 6 on the scale of Poulssen. The other result at the level of school facilities with indices of zonal aptitude varying between 0.41 and 1.02 on the neighbourhoods of “Maitar and Sidi Slimane” on a scale of 0 to 5. These figures are alarming for local authorities and require a search for social diversity and a re-evaluation of the methods of decision making for the allocation of school facilities based on socio-economic data and a level of facilities comparable to a national average. Its objectives are the result of combining social and spatial indicators in a square matrix by Saaty's AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) method. It is in this complex urban context that geographic information systems (GIS) can be used as a decision support tool, with a dashboard that displays in real time the situation of the different districts of the city, by means of disparity indices.Key words: Boussaâda, inter-neighbourhood disparities, school facilities, zonal suitability index, AHP method, spatial and residential segregation, multicriteria decision© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Assessment of walkability in the city centre of M’sila using a
           quantitative barometer

    • Authors: Malika Ouzir
      Pages: 173 - 184
      Abstract: In recent years, much attention has been drawn to the walkability, it is regarded as an important urban capability that needs to be achieved and enhanced, as the urban environment can either permit or hinder the propensity to walk. This paper aims to explain the spatial relations that describe the elements of urban design for a walkable urban environment; we also attempt to measure and specialize in public pedestrian spaces using a qualitative barometer (in the city centre of M’sila that becomes a commercial attraction). This barometer shows how urban design can be used as a way to create functional city centre, it also analyses the conditions under which the city centre offers an adequate and favourable environment for walking. Although the city centre of M’sila provides many positive things like diverse shopping places and a variety of functions other than shopping. However, it requires continuous development to urban design to meet the new social requirements. The pedestrian encounters many obstacles and difficulties in moving and accessing public spaces, especially during peak hours and holidays, which has prompted us to draw particular attention to further analysis of different elements of the layout.Key words: evaluating the walkability, pedestrian accessibility, city centre, M'sila, public space, urban planning© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Assessing Urban Vulnerability to Landslides Using the Analytic Hierarchy
           Process (AHP). Case Study of the Municipal Head of Djebahia in Algeria

    • Authors: Naima Dilmi, Hynda Boutabba
      Pages: 185 - 200
      Abstract: Djebahia is an average city in the Algerian centre, reported to have many risks related to landslides, with very important indices of instabilities. The recurrence of damaging events in this locality has shown the fragility of its urban system. The main objective of this article is to analyse the urban vulnerability in Djebahia municipality by determining the physical condition of its urban structure. The procedures for the analysis of factors at the origin of the risk in this city are mainly derived from the spatial analysis program, represented by the geographic information system software (ARCMAP), which contains a set of tools facilitating the process analysis. The present research was based on the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) of Thomas Laurie Saaty (1990), which belongs to a series of multi-criteria approaches. The analysis showed three levels of urban vulnerability: high, medium, and low, while the elements most affected by landslides are equipment, collective, and individual housing. These results were translated into a map of urban vulnerability to landslide risk.Key words: Djebahia, landslides, Analytic Hierarchy Process, urban vulnerability, geographic information system© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Geographic Axes and Cultural Diversity in Romania

    • Authors: Alexandru Marius Tătar
      Pages: 201 - 222
      Abstract: Culture as a factor for sustainable development reaffirms the importance of local and regional identity and specificity, which implies the need to protect heritage and raise community awareness of its value. These objectives position culture as the fourth pillar of sustainable development, alongside the economic, social, and environmental sectors. The measures support the contribution of culture and cultural heritage to sustainable development, defining territorial vitality by highlighting elements of local and regional identity and by better protecting cultural heritage. To protect heritage, it is necessary to analyse and present data on cultural tourism, including details of the cultural development of certain peoples and acculturation phenomena, all of which form part of a heritage that can then be exploited for tourism purposes. This is the premise from which I started, trying to highlight the possibilities of tourist exploitation of the existing heritage. The research objectives are:   The exploitation of cultural resources - elements of local and regional identity - for sustainable territorial development and high quality of life along geographical axes; Better protection of cultural heritage, based on a knowledge of the situation through the development of a tourism program based on cultural diversity in the area of the geographical axes: Siret, Mures, and Bistrita-Nasaud county. Thus, to achieve the objectives following observations in the field and through the cultural diversity present on the territory of Romania given by the heritage of the past (over two thousand years of history) we will be able to outline the geographical axes. The research theme sets the direction of action by promoting an integrated approach to territorial development interventions, highlighting the role of culture in the development of the geographical axis.Key words: cultural tourism, cultural tourism axis, heritage, sustainable development, geographical axis© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • A systematic analysis of conservation the World archaeological site Al
           Qal’a Bani Hammed in Algeria

    • Authors: Salima Saouchi, Boudjamea Khalfallah
      Pages: 223 - 238
      Abstract: The protection of urban heritage is not an abstract intellectual theory, as it resembles any planning process subject to a set of factors. Those factors are determined in a progressive and continuous way by the actors of this field. If the political decision was considered the main motor of its dimensions and objectives, the technical factor is not less important, it is embodied these dimensions and objectives. In this context this study came to approximate between the Points of View the first and the second the area of conservation the World archaeological site Al Qal’a Bani Hammed in Algeria (PPMVSA). Although their theoretical reference is the same, but technical evaluation has different in determining the protection perimeter, using the geographic information system (GIS) and multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) to systematically and precisely analyse the factors controlling the determination of the archaeological protection area, we are reducing the percentage of  biased points of view and we propose an alternative to protection plan based on precise scientific principles and standards.Key words: Bani Hamed Qal’a, conservation plan, multiple-criteria decision analysis (MCDA), location preferences© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Cultural Peculiarities and Housing Production in Algeria. Djelfa Area
           Condition

    • Authors: Atmani Abderrahmane, Boudjamea Khalfallah, Abid Sebei
      Pages: 239 - 250
      Abstract: The current residential production in Algeria is diverse, but is relatively similar in terms of design. The similarity in design has become inevitable, due to the scarcity of real-estate, the increasing demand for housing, and the rise of the urban population. Because of the aforementioned reasons, we notice that the peculiarities of the local communities that structure the Algerian societies are not taken into account. The urban design of the local communities (Kabyle, Mzabi, Shawi, Targui...) show evident similarities overall; however, some details are imposed by the local culture of each community. Those details are absent in contemporary residential production. Through this study, we aim to identify a number of cultural peculiarities of the local Naily community in the region of Djelfa, the ways these peculiarities reflect on the local traditional construction, and the set of mechanisms for inclusion in contemporary housing production. The study is divided in two parts: a theoretical part, in which we highlighted the interrelationship between cultural peculiarities, urbanism and the local community, and an applied part in which we employed the Delphi technique and chose the region of Djelfa as a case study. The results show the following: 43 answers through the application of Delphi Method by experts distributed on the three questions asked which in general provided important pieces of information, through which we were able to access the set of cultural peculiarities of the local community in the region of Djelfa, the reflection of these peculiarities on the local construction and how to include some  solutions to address the current residential production in a way that protects the cultural peculiarities of the Naily community in the region of Djelfa.Key words: cultural peculiarities, local community, local housing, residential production, Djelfa, Delphi Method© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Green Spaces Between Water Shortage and Greed for Urban Sprawl, Supported
           by Fierce Speculation: Case Study, the City of M'sila

    • Authors: Lahcene Hadj Hafsi, Boudjamea Khalfallah, Djamel Alkama, Salim Dehimi
      Pages: 251 - 266
      Abstract: Water and green spaces have an existential, sometimes conflicting, relationship with urban sprawl, especially in regions with arid climates. Both are important elements of the urban composition that provide psychological and sanitary comfort and are economically, socially, and ecologically necessary for the population. By green space, we mean fruit trees and the cultivation of cereals and vegetables, which represent the main economic resource for the majority of the population of the city of M'sila. Our research aims to highlight the impact of the drop-in water from the Ksob dam. The only source of irrigation for climatic and management reasons, on the degradation of green spaces and their transformation into bare land without economic value, then into nurseries for urban planning. The consequences of the directives of the urban planning master plan (PUD 1976) are certainly catastrophic; water, demography, urban planning, and the future of the agro-pastoral vocation and green spaces of the city of M'sila. The data available and the technique used allowed us to include the period from 2017 to 2021. The numerical data shows the upward curve of urban expansion from 3,401.67 hectares to 3,969.28 hectares, the reduction of green spaces from 7,732.68 hectares to 3,802.77 hectares in just five years. There is similar trend for water which is reduced from 30 million m3 in 1972 to 3 million m3 in 2021, ten times less in 40 years. These figures reflect the seriousness of situation.Key words: water, green spaces, urban sprawl, urban composition, ArcGIS, Ksob dam, M’sila© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Towards Sustainable Tourism Planning in Bou Saâda, Algeria

    • Authors: Fatima Zahra Berreghioua, Boudjamea Khalfallah
      Pages: 267 - 282
      Abstract: The city of Bou Saâda is one of the Algerian cities that have diverse tourism resources, but it has not been adopted as a premier tourist spot nor has it benefited from the tourism programs established within the national strategy for sustainable tourism development for Horizons 2030, which made the tourism weak compared to other Algerian regions that have similar tourism elements. This study aims to evaluate the existing tourism strategy to address the shortcomings and provide solutions by focusing on four variables: tourist destination, tourism industry, the tourist market, and actors in tourism. We have relied on the following techniques: SWOT analysis to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the tourism sector in Bou Saâda, MCDA Analysis using AHP for spatial planning for the future tourism industry, and a questionnaire form distributed to the residents, the tourists and the experts to take their suggestions and use them in guiding the tourism planning process. The results of the study proved that there is a weakness in the tourism planning process in the city of Bou Saâda, which negatively affects the tourism traffic, that is still weak compared to the qualifications it has, which if exploited according to a well-thought-out strategy, the city will become a targeted tourist destination.Key words: tourism resources, challenges, tourism planning, sustainable tourism development, Bou Saâda

  • Using Behavior Mapping to Evaluate the Using Efficiency of Public Square
           Case study: November 1st, 1954 Square in M'sila City

    • Authors: Imededdine Salamani, Hynda Boutabba, Nabyl Chenaf
      Pages: 283 - 298
      Abstract: Human behaviour and social interactions in public places are the results of mental processes that are affected by the different components of these spaces. These components may be physical, social, cultural or sensory, but they all have in common the ability to influence the behaviour of users in the public sphere. Consequently, human behaviour can be affected by the presence of physical and environmental features of public places such as buildings, streets, landforms and even occupation by other people. The physical components of public spaces can have a deep impact on how people behave, live and interact in public spaces. This paper aims to highlight the use of public squares in M'sila city, by relating the physical characteristics and behaviour of users within these squares. The analysis was based on the behavioural map approach, which combines two complementary research techniques: direct observation and the questionnaire. To achieve the results, the data was analysed by SPSS and represented by the GIS program. The study concluded that there is a mismatch in the reciprocal relationship between human behaviour and the physical environment of 1st November, 1954 Square, which has resulted in negative effects on human behaviour, which in turn has affected the physical environment of the square too.Key words: behaviour mapping, public square, user’s behaviour, physical characteristics, M'sila city© 2022 Serbian Geographical Society, Belgrade, Serbia.This article is an open access article distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Serbia.

  • Milovan V. Radovanović: Kosovo and Metohia - Antropogeographical,
           historical and geographical, demographical and geopolitical foundations.

    • Authors: Mirko Grčić
      Pages: 299 - 318
      Abstract: The book under the specified title undoubtedly the most comprehensive and profound analysis of the ethnic processes in Kosovo-Metohija to date. The author of the book, our respected university professor and prominent scientist Milovan V. Radovanovic (1931-†2009), implemented an interdisciplinary approach to the problem of ethnic processes, addressing it primarily from the grounds of anthropogeography, but also of ethnography, political history, historical demography, onomatology, sociology, ethno-psychology, geopolitics, and of the related specialized branches of learning. Although the book is written at the confluence of diverse scientific disciplines, its main focus is on the demographic development of the Serbian and Albanian people in an historical retrospect and perspective. It adds to the value of our accummulated knowledge on the ethnic and demographic processes in Kosovo-Metohija, and makes a substantial contribution to the development of the scientific-humanist thought on this so fateful a region for the Serbian nation.

           settlements.

    • Authors: Mirko Grčić
      Pages: 319 - 332
      Abstract: The great Serbian geographer Jovan Cvijić bequeathed his students and followers to study the Serbian lands and the Serbian people. The best living representative and supporter of Cvijić's school of geography, prof. Dr. Stevan Stanković, emeritus, realized his intellectual debt a long time ago and devoted himself to that goal. As Cvijić used to be, so is prof. Stanković traveled tirelessly, carried out field research on mountains, lakes, rivers, inspected practically every corner of Serbia, visited every city, museum, monastery, spa. In addition, for each of his researches, he studied extensive literature of various scientific origins and wrote tirelessly. His great work energy, but also his talent for scientific work and field observations, is evidenced by his huge scientific opus, which ranks him among the most productive Serbian geographers of all time. He synthesized and presented his vast knowledge and decades of experience in geographical studies of rivers, lakes, mountains, spas, cities, roads, tourist attractions and sights of Serbia in this book.
