Meso-scale models, where countries or nations are split into regional zones, have a longer tradition in regional science, planning and geography (McCann 2001; Stimson et al. 2006). For example, many former macro-scale models such as input–output techniques are now increasingly appearing in the literature at the regional scale. D. uk G. uk S.
