Abstract
This work is related to the mapping of spatial distribution of schools in the Emirate Makkah al-Mukarramah in relation to the spatial distribution of the population. The question of accessibility to school, college, high school and university is highlighted in this work.
The main contribution of this paper is to visualize and analyze spatial disparities in educational institutions taken across the Emirates, of provinces and centers and to address the issue of accessibility of the population to schools to assist in decision making.
We are then trying to answer a number of questions:
- What is the structure of the school network?
- What is the relative position of a spatial unit to the distribution of schools, compared to other similar units or different scales?
- Is the school planning has a place in territorial planning?
So we try, in the first place, to develop a school mapping, then to compare and analyze the relative position of a territory face to its neighbors and face to the spatial unit to which he belongs, for some variables concerning teaching. In the second place, it addresses the issue of accessibility of the population to schools. Finally, we discuss school planning and we present some proposals for redevelopment of the school board.
