Paper Abstract

In this paper we attempt to assess the patterns of spatial association of technical market in China spanning from 1998 to 2005 by using GIS and ESDA. The study starts from exploring global spatial association of technical market by means of a global indicator of spatial autocorrelation. Secondly, in order to analyze the local patterns that the global indicator would not pick up, local indicator of spatial association is applied to technical market in China. Thirdly, analysis on stability of spatial pattern is carried out to evaluate similarities and dissimilarities during the whole period. We can draw a conclusion that spatial pattern of Chinese technical market has been stable along the time. Significant global spatial clustering is presented in the first two years, while the remaining years display a global spatial randomness. In terms of local patterns, clear spatial clustering of different pattern is found in some regions.
