Social and economic dynamics appear in metropolitan territories, and as such metropolitan areas have become territorial units of analysis. Hence they have become privileged observatories for the study of current urban reality. Here recent territorial dynamics of the metropolitan region are presented from the perspective of population redistribution and economic activities as well typologies of built housing. These variables introduce metropolitan subareas and through them administrative maps and mobility models are analyzed.
