Research on the Analytical Method of the Contributing Factors of Settlement Generation
Major factors in settlement generation can be summarized as four aspects, the natural environment factor, the social ethic factor, visual esthetics factor, socioeconomic contributing factor etc. nowadays numerous analyses are being conducted in these four aspects, however the vast majority of them are partial, one dimensional researches and the results are often remote from the actual effects. From the perspective of human settlements, the author made a general research by means of systematic approach and discussed how to effectively combine these four aspects to form an evaluation system based on the effect of settlement generation, in order to obtain an ideal outcome of settlement generation.
