Study on Space Model of Urban Expansion
With GIS spatial application model, from the angles of space developing and changing, explore the motion and change rules of urban development in the process of urbanization, and improve scientific nature and accuracy of forecast. To analyze the characteristics and their driving forces of changes in urban construction land and urban expansion space, first we have explored space model of urban expansion theoretically, then made some research combining the examples of urban spatial and temporal changes in Luoyang City. Study the laws of urban expansion from the angles of temporal and spatial variation with GIS space analysis model, thereby explore the internal mechanism of urban spatial variation, which can be provided with better research efficiency.
