The Causes Which Influence the Change of Spatial Development Pattern in Taipei Metropolitan Area

K. C. Hsu, T. Y. Lai, and C. H. Lee
Abstract—Taipei metropolitan area has taken on a frog-leap and scattered landscape structure during the recent twenty years. Therefore, this study shall establish an evaluation system about the factors influencing the spatial development pattern in metropolitan area, through fuzzy deliph method to screen out possible 17 factors that influence the spatial development pattern of Taipei metropolitan area, and furthermore through multiple regression model to confirm 7 factors which have obvious significance. Among the 7 factors, some have positive impacts on the spatial sprawl trend, such as change rate of average housing price, growth rate of acreage in non-metropolitan land change cases deliberated by local government, distance from the development centre of the metropolitan area, quantity of railway stations, growth rate of the quantity of expressway or motorway interchanges, growth rate of the quantity of universities and colleges; but quantity of MRT stations has negative impact on the spatial sprawl trend.

Index Terms—Urban sprawl, landscape structure, fuzzy deliph method, Taipei metropolitan area.
