Paper Abstract

The relationship between human beings and the earth is one of the important aspects in geographic research, so the study on land use should be focused on the interactions caused by the relationship between human beings and the earth. The author begins with the current land use in the study area, and zonal farm-land use and rural residential population data can be spatialized on the map and reclassified into the grid, according to the results of geostatistcal analysis. Based on the spatialized results, using bivariate Moran indices, a correlation analysis between these two factors and the statistical test should be performed, and the results can be visualized by GIS methods. What has been showing in this research is that, comparing with classical correlation analysis in normal statistics, spatial correlation analysis can be more exact in theory and more available in application.
