Paper Abstract

Traffic location is one of the most important factors which affect the development of rural settlements. However, there is no effective method to evaluation traffic location of rural settlements at present. Focusing on large numbers of scattered rural settlements with complicated and fragmentized traffic networks, a weighted euclidean distance method for rural settlements traffic location evaluation is put forward in this paper. In order to differentiate the affection that different levels of roads put on rural settlements, roads are sorted into two classes: the level-roads (such as national and provincial roads, county and town roads) and the village-roads. Then the total quantized value of traffic location of rural settlements, obtained by weighing traffic location quantized values on different road levels, was calculated by GIS spatial analysis module. This method was put into practice to analyze the traffic location of Tonglu County, Zhejiang Province, which showed that it has obtained a fairly good result on the evaluation of the traffic location of rural settlements.
