A Human Settlement's Assessment with GIS on Niche Suitability in Heng Yang City of China
  Abstract

In order to assess the cities' human settlement, this paper proposes a new method according to the elements of niche suitability by the following: (1) the author selects meticulously 25 leading indicators what can reflect the best coupling between the reality niche and the best approximate niche; (2) the author sets up a new quantitative model of multiplies indices using niche suitability on assessing the cities' human settlements.
