Evaluating Land Use Intensification Based on Entropy Method --- A Case Study of Hefei

Lan Yao, Qi Yin

Abstract


In this paper, we establish the index system of urban land intensive use evaluation from four aspects: land investment level, land utilization level, land output effect, land use ecological benefits. The entropy method is used to calculate indexes which measure the land intensive utilization in Hefei. According to the comprehensive evaluation model we can draw a conclusion that although the land intensive use level of Hefei was ascending from 2004 to 2008, it is still at low level in 2008. Finally, we make suggestions about how to improve the intensive use level in Hefei with the help of the integrated assessment value of each rule layer. The conclusion indicate that Hefei should solve land utilization problems by setting the target for land intensive utilization, optimizing the land use structure, improving the urban environment, enhancing the land use level, changing the direction of land utilization, only in theses ways the land utilization of Hefei will be intensive.
