Land Evaluation Supported by MDS


GIS-MCE is the main method in land evaluation,but it is a linear method and neglects multidimensional complexity of factors used in land evaluation, which leads to information loss. Multidimensional scaling (MDS) originates from psychoanalysis, which is used to describe multidimensional data in higher dimensions by transforming data in higher dimensions into geometry structure in Lower dimensions. In the Land evaluation model supported by MDS, the data is transformed into a similar space and land evaluation is completed according to the spatial clustering based on the data’s spatial similarity ,which is a method drived by data and not dependenting on others priori assumption. Taking expropriation division in Xuzhou city as an example, it shows that the land evaluation based on MDS meets the requirements of land classification.
