Keywords: Heat Map, Kernel Density Analysis, Traffic Weighting, Transportation Development Index, Iterate Optimization
Abstract. Heat map is an intuitive and accurate visualization tool for spatial data, which is wildly used in many fields. Based on analysis and setting the various layer weights and technical levels of traffic lines, we can use heat map to demonstrate the distribution state and development level of transportation in certain region, with using the comprehensively methods of inverse distance weight, histogram equalization, density compensation and repetitive parameter iteration. The heat map rule describes the rules of traffic line weighting, line-to-poly modification, dot density adjustment and liner fitting, et al, which can extract and demonstrate transportation development index accurately. Based on traffic layer of global geographic data in some Asian and African countries, heat map of transportation development index test has been done to verify the feasibility and reliability.
