Maps

Thanks to the maps of the past that we have, we can compare the past with the present and predict the future.

In the past, a lot of the things that nowadays are built and urbanized, then were croplands. This indicate that the society of about a hundred years ago were very rural. From two of the places that we have chosen, one was a town full of country houses (Gurb) and the other is a tiny city surrounded by croplands and country houses. In this city every fabric was localized in a strategic place, like in the rivers o next to the roads. In the actuality, the fabrics are far from the urban centre, in industrial estates.

The actual society have evolved up to one point where we are almost not rural, and every time less. This evolution intensified recently with the estate bubble. Thanks to that we can predict that, if there isn’t a big change, everything will be urbanized. If this continue like this, we can predict that in one hundred years, the city of Vic could grow by 150%.

Another effect that will modify the society of the future is the climatic change. This will cause many train tracks to be replaced by more eco-friendly trains. The climatic change will cause that the new buildings will be designed to take full advantage of renewable energies. Although having a lot of pollution, the fabrics won’t stop growing, a lot of them will change to renewable energies, but others will continue to use oil. But thanks to the technology revolution, nobody will go t work to the fabrics, Instead everybody will work in home with the internet. In the future, the localization of the factories won’t change too much, the actual industrial zone, “Mas Gali”, will increase in a considerably size and the industrial zone “Les Casasses” won’t change. The industrial zone “el Burger”, that it’s relatively new, will increase too and near that it will be a new industrial zone named “poligon de la Moda”, orientate to all the fabrics of the textile industry, like Inditex or Mango.
