Effect of Rent Spatial Distribution to Urban Business District Planning


Article Preview

As the physical embodiment of urban commerce, the leasing of office buildings objectively influences the reconstitution of city space and the construction of commercial zones. By adopting Kriging in a geostatistical analysis module, this paper takes the rent of office buildings in Chongqing as the subject of research to construct a digital rent spatial model based on lease transaction data from 2009 with ArcGIS. Using the rent thematic map provided by this model and combining the specific circumstances of Chongqing, the rent spatial distribution structure is studied, so as to provide the basis for an approach to commercial land division and spatial planning.
