Hi, I'd appreciate your interpretation of this term (at the end of context)

"Con todos estos insumos, se procederá a realizar la definición funcional del territorio, que seguirá la metodología clásica de análisis de redes o sistemas de ciudades, a través de la que se identifican los diferentes polos productivos y de consumo de mayor peso logístico, y se cuantifican – en la medida en que la información disponible lo permita – los flujos de carga y personas que definen un ámbito territorial funcionalmente integrado."

Thanks :)
