This paper focuses attention on qualitative impact analysis for spatial dynamics. It aims at developing new analytical tools for describing absolute and relative dynamics of spatial evolution based on either a simple core-ring model or a more general core-ring-periphery model, based on a semi-ordinal sign analysis. Although the number of qualitative categories of possible states of an urban/regional system may be very large, the spatio-temporal evolution of such systems (based on the spatial cycle hypothesis) exhibits fairly uniform patterns.
