—Mixed land-use is one of the long-term policies to
land management in most Asian countries. In the recent, it not
only been advocated by new urbanism, but also the important
land planning concept of smart growth and compact city in
America and many European countries. Land use and
transportation both are the important elements for urban and
regional development. In the recent, new urbanism promoted
mixed land use to be a land developmental type, in the
meantime, the concept and importance of Transit-Oriented
Development was emphasized. It was mean that mixed land use
and transportation need to cooperate to achieve the goal of good
urban development. In this paper, in addition to measure the
degree of mixed land use, it also provides the new method and
concept of accessibility, adopting the spatial accessibility of
road network to examine the relationship between
transportation system and mixed land-use, to view whether
transportation system and mixed land-use can coordinate each
other that it contributes to establish strategies for land use,
transportation planning and management; on the other hand,
the analysis theory and method can be used to explore the
structure and patterns of urban development further for other
relevant departments reference when establishing the policies.
