Abstract

Differences between brownfields and redeveloped sites in the Ostrava metropolitan area are subject to analysis in this paper. Environmental burden and former functional use were identified as statistically significant characteristics of such differences. In addition, relations between selected attributes of brownfields and redeveloped sites were analyzed using the “if-then” decision rules of the rough set method. In this way, the research demonstrated the significance of spatial aspects and identified two fundamental types of brownfields in the model area. The first type is represented by agricultural brownfields in the hinterland zone, that are characterized by a complicated ownership structure. Brownfields of the second type are located particularly in the inner city morphogenetic zone, and are characterized by potential problems with environmental burden. In this context, brownfields and redeveloped sites differ respectively in the combination of these characteristics.

Shrnutí

Cílem článku je analyzovat rozdíly mezi brownfields a nově využitými lokalitami v ostravské metropolitní oblasti. Ekologická zátěž a bývalé funkční využití byly v tomto ohledu identifikovány jako statisticky významné charakteristiky. Současně jsou na bázi využití „když - pak“ rozhodovacích pravidel metody rough množin hodnoceny relace mezi vybranými atributy brownfields a nově využitými lokalitami. V tomto ohledu výzkum potvrdil významnost prostorových aspektů a identifikoval dva základní typy brownfields v modelové oblasti. První typ je reprezentován zemědělskými brownfields v zázemí modelové oblasti, které jsou charakteristické komplikovanou vlastnickou strukturou. Brownfields druhého typu jsou lokalizovány převážně v morfogenetické zóně vnitřního města a jsou charakteristické potenciálními problémy s ekologickými zátěžemi. Kombinace uvedených charakteristik nám umožňuje odlišit brownfields a nově využité lokality.
