The Geographic Assessment of the Distribution of Civil Defence Centers in Ma'an Governorate

Auther : Abdulhamed A. Alfnatseh

This research aims to investigate the geographical distribution of Jordan Civil Defense centers in Ma'an governorate. It also seeks to study the level of spatial importance of the centers according to the size of geographic variables in their own spatial field, where the final outcome is to recognize the current service levels in these centers in order to set out a clear future vision that would ensure efficiency and sufficiency in addition to identifying the patterns of the spatial distribution of these centers. The descriptive approach and the curriculum (analytical inductive) were used in this research to achieve its objectives. The research project also made use of the data obtained from the governmental institutions and the field study in which the GPS was used in an effort to achieve accuracy in locating the sites of civil defence centers. The study found that there was no correspondence between the current distribution of the centers and that of the geographic variables, such as the land space of the administrative departments in the city, the distribution and density of the population, the characteristics of road network, the images of land use, and the density of each of the residential buildings, educational and medical facilities, which ultimately indicate the importance of the spatial distribution of these centers that led to discrepancy in the standard of services provided. Improving the current standards of service requires expediting the process of creating a geographic database closely linked with Jordan's Civil Defense Centers.
Keywords: Jordanian Civil Defence, Spatial Distribution, Neighbourhood Ties, Ordinal Measurement.
