ON THE HIGHWAY NATURAL REGIONALIZATION OF CHINA
1978, 33 (1):
The Highway Regionalization of China, which has been approved and tentatively adopted by the Ministry of Communication, is the first of its kind in China in the area of applied complex natural regionalization. It aims to bring out the regional differentiation of the natural conditions relevant to highway construction, and to provide engineering parameters and basic information on natural conditions of each region. It is worked out according to the theory of geographical zonation. Both "dominant factor" and "multiple factors" are used in selecting the criteria for iden-tifying regions.
