Paper Abstract

Urban flow is a phenomenon of the interaction and relation between the cities in the region based on the transport network and urban synthetic strength. And, because of the difference in traffic conditions and the level of economic development in different city, the intensity of the urban flow of each city is different and the primary effecting factor is dissimilar. The traditional analysis on the effecting factors of urban flow concerns the background of the entire region as a whole entity, which would be too vague and ignore the difference in the effecting factors of different cities as well as the micro differences and spatial non-stationarity in the dominant factor. The research on spatial difference in the effecting factors of the urban flow in this paper focused on the analysis of the diverse effecting factors of urban flow caused by the regional disparity; found out the primary factors; and analyzed the spatial characteristics of effecting factors using GIS. We established a mathematical model, which was applied to the urban agglomeration of the Yangtze River Delta, the intensity of the urban flow of every city in this district was figured and the regression model was constructed. The principal effecting factor of the urban flow of every city and its characteristic of the spatial distribution was analyzed. we summarized the effecting factors of the urban flow is an indication of the persistence of spatial difference among Yangtze River Delta, and the spatial pattern of it was investigated.
