A Research on the Urban Landscape Value Evaluation Based on AHP Algorithm

Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 144)


Based on the analytic hierarchy process (AHP), this paper constructs the multi-target and multilevel comprehensive evaluation model of urban landscape value evaluation from three perspectives of landscape, ecology and social effects. By adopting landscape ecological unit grid-type analytical method and by virtue of GIS technique, the paper performs lattice-based treatment, establishes landscape value evaluation system database, performs comprehensive grading of and assignment calculation of the landscape value evaluation factor by integrating weighted index model and determines the high and low each unit landscape value and its distribution. The transformation of the traditional qualitative analysis method into the combination of qualitative analysis with quantitative analysis increases the objectivity and scientificity of the urban landscape value evaluation. And the evaluation system and evaluation model is applied into the urban landscape value evaluation of Huashan, Wuhan.
