Document analysis methodology

The analysis of spatial development documents produced a total of 182 different transnational needs. Most of these individual needs contain a detailed description of

  • the transnational dimension,
  • the added value that can be expected from respective improvements and
  • obstacles that currently impede a transnational spatial development.

To be able to carry out a quantitative analysis of this data collection, we carried out two steps:

  • Step 1: We indexed each individual entry with an individual keyword
  • Step 2: We summarised related keywords to a keyword category.

As an example this stepwise approach looks like:

Original text reference in the spatial planning document, e.g. regarding the transnational dimension: Is a declination of the Community strategic guidelines for rural development (programming period 2007 to 2013) (2006/144/EC): “improving governance and mobilising the endogenous development potential of rural areas”

Individual key word applied: Rural areas' engodeneous development potential

keyword category applied: Rural development

Approach, methodology and key findings of the document analysis
