Based on the evaluation methods and systems of information measurement level, and according to the principles of agriculture information subject, the study constructed 13 indices system for the measurement of the rural areas and agriculture information level in Yellow-river Delta in 2007. Spatial autocorrelation model of rural areas and agriculture information of 19 country units showed that the comprehensive information level of Hanting, Shouguang, Guangrao, Bincheng, Huimin, Wudi and Yangxin country unit is very significant, has the obvious spatial agglomeration and homogeneity characteristics, but information level agglomeration of Kenli country and Zouping city has the significant heterogeneity, and information level agglomeration characteristics of other 10 country units is not significant. The radius surface of the complicated information level from radial basis function model indicated that rural areas and agriculture information service has a certain service radius, the distance of service radius in theory is 30Km, the gradient and hierarchy is obvious. According to it, the comprehensive service node should be established in Bincheng district and the secondary service node should be set up in Wudi country for improving the service efficiency. Combining with GIS grid technology, the profile line results of rural areas and agriculture information service from centroid coordinates based on 19 country units illustrated the fluctuation characteristics of the comprehensive information level. For yellow-river Delta, the high-efficiency ecological zone construction should consider the gradients of information service, continuity of information service and spatial agglomeration characteristics of 19 country units. Correspondingly, the regional policy which reflected the regional difference and association characteristics was carried out to achieve the leap development.
