Abstract

In this Chapter, we analyze the dynamic evolution and moving tracks of the center of gravity of the spatial pattern of China’s urban development during the past 60 years via literature review, statistical analysis, and GIS approaches. In particular, the study analyzes the evolution trajectories of the scale structure of urban population, economy and land use, urban spatial forms, and urban functional composition.
