—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.
