Factors Affecting Location of Quaternary Activity
  • Populations of people who are concentrated in an area make the information sector practical - provides a workforce and market.
  • Infrastructure is required for the communication of information…towers, poles, cables, connectivity, computers, satellites, buildings and networks.
  • Education of people is necessary for high-tech work.

Factors Affecting Mass Communications Patterns.
  • In global communications there are areasof activity and there are areas where there is no activity because of a lack of development and no connectivity.

  • If Infrastructure improves to the point where it overcomes distances, information technology will be a new source of employment in rural regions. (Call Centers and people working online from home.)
  • However, we may lose high-tech jobs to other countries – educated people but cheap labour.
