Urban Ecological Territory Model: Discussion and Application
The urban ecological territory model uses traditional ecological evaluation methods, such as ecological carrying capacity and ecological footprint, to create a new urban ecological model that uses a quantified spatial structure. This new model allows for the quantitative analysis of indicators such as ecological efficiency, quality, security, and fairness. The paper presents an example application of the model through a comparative analysis of two cities. Analyses using the new model can be used to guide urban development policy decisions.
