GIS-Based Quantitative Classification of Neighborhood Types for Zhongshan City, China
In this paper, we propose a GIS-based method that combines factor analysis and cluster analysis to quantitatively classify neighborhoods type for Zhangshan City, China. First, the possible measures for neighborhood type classification are reviewed. Then, ten measures are chosen for the case study. Factor analysis is adopted to generate five major factors and cluster analysis is used to identify six neighborhood types.
