Paper Abstract

Urban function partitioning is one of the important tasks of urban land utilization and management. The goal of urban function partitioning is to make the urban land form a set of specific function units and regular spatial structures. Spatial clustering is the key process of urban function partitioning. Based on geographical information system (GIS) and the principle of self-organizing feature map network, this paper presents a combined -type of spatial clustering. That is to say, the attribute features and their spatial positions are processed by a unitive spatial clustering model, and then the isolated "islands" or the "holes" of spatial clustering outputs should be smoothed into their neighborhood. This method fully mines the connotative spatial clustering information in spatial attribute data and spatial positions. The experiment shows that the unitive spatial clustering method can provide a sufficient and reliable basis for urban function partitioning.
