Paper Abstract

As one of the 101 leading national-level historical and culture cities in China, Nanjing owns affluent historical cultural resources. In order to effectively manage and thoroughly protect these valuable resources, which seem to scatter randomly across the space of Nanjing, we must explore the potential distribution rule beneath them. Empirical experience informs us historical sightings agglomerating in a geographical sense (along linear streets, within architectures blocks, etc) generally preserve a relatively complete historical style and feature because of rooting in a same historical tradition. Based on it, we firstly tackle these plot data with cluster analysis, which produces a preliminary result of twelve sorts, and then disconnects or units certain sorts according to a further investigation of cultural homogeneity and neighboring natural scene. This modification reaches seven sorts, an ideal historical and culture planning model for Nanjing. Undoubtedly, extending from this successful case, we believe this method will also provide powerful references for historical city preservation plans of other cities.
