Paper Abstract

Spatial relationship is an important research area in GIS. The orientation information about the urban environment is directly available to human beings through perception and is crucial for establishing their spatial location and for way-finding. People perceive the layout of entities in space, categorize them as spatial relationships, and describe them as spatial expression in language. The orientation expression in different language is different. This paper will discuss the road network in Beijing and its characteristic. We analyze the post-position in Chinese, we know that people like to use 'outside' and 'inside' in the sentence "N is + ring road + postposition" by first experiment. We will illustrate the fuzzy range by 'outside or inside' in the ring-road by the second experiment. In the last part, we conclude the paper and our further research.
