Abstract—Ecological sensitivity analysis is an important
basis of city planning. To optimize the land use layout and
promote the ecological construction and environmental
protection, remote sensing technology and geographic
information system technology are used to construct the index
system of ecological sensitivity analysis innovatively from five
layers of nature. Then the comprehensive analysis and
evaluation of the study area are carried out with the spatial
distribution of ecological sensitivity. The results show that the
ecological sensitivity of the study area is high on the whole.
Extremely high and highly sensitive areas account for 36.08%
of the research region, mildly sensitive and moderately sensitive
are as account for 52.20%, and non-sensitive area is the smallest,
only account for 11.72%. Existing built-up lands are mainly
distributed in the moderately, mildly and non-sensitive areas.
However, there are about 20% of the built-up lands distributed
in the extremely high or highly sensitive areas. Overall, the
consideration of the ecological sensitivity of new development
lands is insufficient. In the later urban expansion, the land
development of the extremely high and highly sensitive areas
should be strictly limited. Furthermore, ecological restoration
should be performed at the same time or in the near future.
Index Terms—Ecological sensitivity, remote sensing, geographic information system, spatial distribution, land development.
