DescriptionThis article examines patterns of rural land development and density using spatial econometric models with the application of Geographical Information System (GIS). The cluster patterns of both development and high-density development indicate that the spatially continuous expansions of development and high-density development exist in relatively remote rural areas. The results also revealed that a closer distance to roads, a closer distance to cities, greater access to streams and rivers, higher elevations, and greater proportions of flat area are valued highly in rural land development.
