An archive of the datasets developed for the Regional Systems Analysis laboratory, under the direction of G. William Skinner. See also sample layers as webmaps.

The core datasets, including GIS layers and tabular data, are being preserved in this repository. Together the datasets will present a case study of the methodology used for determination of the Levels in Urban Hierarchy (LUH), Urban-Rural Continuum values (URC), and the delineation of Core Periphery Zones (CPZ).

For a comprehensive description of the analysis method, please see Spatial Contexts of Urbanization and Land Conservation in North China by Mark Henderson.
