Paper Abstract

In this paper, the spatial changes of suburbanization is analyzed in Shanghai by selecting industrial and residential data layers upon the land-use data of Shanghai in 1979, 1988, 2000 which interpreted from remote sensing data. First, industrial and residential land-use data in different time were overlaid in ArcGIS to reflect changes of spatial distribution. Second, the distribution of industrial and residential land-use was mapped for different time by concentric analysis sector of ARCGIS so as to measure the rate and nature of industrial and residential land-use changes from 1979 to 2000 in Shanghai. Third, the expansion strength of industrial and residential land-use in Shanghai was measured by ArcGIS grid analysis to classify the expanding rate of industrial and residential land-use into six grades: very fast expansion, fast expansion, medium-fast expansion, slow expansion, none expansion and reverse expansion.
