Research output: Journal article publicationJournal articleAcademic research


There are four directions for developing the proposed areas of Chaohu City in China and it is considered significant to prioritise the development choice among the four proposed directions or plans. This paper is an application of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in deciding the urban land use development of Chaohu City. We first analyse a variety of factors related to decision of land use, then set up a strategic decision model of hierarchy multi-level and multi-object, and further obtain quantitative results through an analog operation by means of a computer. Finally, based upon the total ordering of levels, decide on the best one from the four projects.
