Abstract

In geography 2 concepts of space are recognizable: Space as a container and space as order. This paper tries to interprete space as order as a system consisting of elements. The order is maintained by an information and energy flow between a superposed (demanding) environment and a subordinated (supplying) environment (vertical tension field); the order or structure is changed by a process which starts and ends (horizontal tension field). Information and energy flow pass 4 levels in the vertical tension field. This model allows a formalization; it reduces complex structures and processes to sequences of basic relations which describe information content, flow of information or energy, transference probability, oscillations etc. It is intended to complete this model; then it should be possible to simulate and manipulate processes, for a clearer understanding of space as an ordered structure.
