Publication: Spatial pattern analysis of mixed-use and verticalized urban manufacturing industry in the seoul metropolitan area of south Korea
Despite long-term job losses, manufacturing remains a critical part of the economic base of most metropolitan areas in South Korea. Most of the existing literature on urban manufacturing is focused on the locations of manufacturing and its economic impacts. Very little empirical research has been conducted on the spatial patterns of urban manufacturing industries which are characterized by mixed-use and verticalization. Using the Establishment Census Spatial database (DB) in 2013 of the Korea National Statistical Office, this research attempts to examine mixed-use patterns of urban manufacturing industry in the Seoul metropolitan area of South Korea. It calculates the urban industrial space mixed-use index, which is a modified entropy index, for each building unit based on individual establishments. Further, it attempts to examine the verticalization patterns of the urban manufacturing industry by calculating the average number of floors of establishments with respect to manufacturing subsectors.
