  A term coined by Patrick Geddes (1854-1932) to describe a built-up area created by the coalescence of several once-separate urban settlements, initially through ribbon development along the main inter-urban routes. With greater urban sprawl the term has now largely been replaced by concepts such as megalopolis, metropolitan area and metropolitan labour area. (RJJ)
