ABSTRACT

This paper aims to analyze the spatial and temporal change of land use and density in Seoul from 1980 to 2007. After reviewing previous study and obtaining related data, this study examines geographical patterns of the total floor area of residential, commercial, office, and industrial land use with diverse methods such as density, continuity, residential-non residential ratio, land use mix, and hot spot analysis. Further, this study attempts to classify the spatial clusters by land use and density based on the output from hot spot analysis. This study confirms that residential land use is more dispersed than that of non-residential. Further, the density and mix of land use have risen due to the increasing supply of physical space for population and economic activity. While non-residential land use tends to appear in localized clusters, residential areas scattered over Seoul city. The outputs of this study provide the insightful implication that policy for linking between socioeconomic features and local contexts of land use and density matters for effective and efficient master plan in Seoul.
