Abstract:

Exploring spatial and temporal pattern evolution and driving factors of urban construction land use efficiency has important theoretical and practical significance for urban sustainable development. Here,31 provinces in China were taken as the research object to measure urban construction land use efficiency using data envelopment analysis. At the same time,ArcGIS was used to explore the spatiotemporal characteristics of urban construction land use efficiency evolution. Driving factors are discussed using grey correlation modeling. We found that from 2009-2013,provincial urban construction land use efficiency increased,but the efficiency value was not high. Spatial differences in urban construction land use efficiency were remarkable. Overall,the use efficiency of urban construction land in China shows significant spatial autocorrelation. The evolution of local spatial patterns was characterized by the following features:comprehensive efficiency of spatial pattern change was small and pure technical efficiency of the overall spatial pattern change was large. The overall spatial pattern of the scale efficiency was consistent with that of comprehensive efficiency,and the overall pattern changed little. The urbanization level,level of economic development,industrial structure,degree of marketization of land,level of science and technology and location conditions all affect urban construction land use efficiency,but the role of these factors in different research issues differed.

Key words: urban construction land, land use efficiency, spatiotemporal pattern, driving factors, China
