Abstract:

Taking the Yangtze River Delta as an example, this paper constructs an evaluation index system to assess the suitability of scenic spots location from the influencing factors. This valuation index system includes four aspects: the degree of relying on cities, the degree of dominance in transport nodes, the degree of supporting by society, and the degree of influence on existing scenic spots. Through analysis, we get some conclusions as follows. The degree of relying on cities presents a circle structure which takes prefecture-level cites as the center. The degree of dominance in transport nodes presents a circle structure which takes airports as the center. The degree of supporting by society presents a circle structure which takes Taihu Lake as the center. The high value regions of the degree of influence on existing scenic spots mainly distribute in the north of the Yangtze River Delta, and sporadically distribute in the south. As a whole, the degree of influence on existing scenic spots shows a pattern which is low in the internal and high in the external. The high value regions of suitability of scenic spots location mainly distribute in two regions: one is in the two banks of the Yangtze River Delta; the other is in the Hangzhou Bay coast. The low value regions mainly distribute in the outer Yangtze River Delta, especially in the south, southwest and Zhoushan Islands.

Key words: scenic spots location, suitability assessment, accessibility, Yangtze River Delta
