    China has experienced significant socioeconomic dynamics within recent decades, including the spatial distribution and composition of population and industry. While some regions experienced spatial growth of population and industry, some other regions experienced declining population and industry, Among 2,751 counties/districts in China, 1,031 counties/districts experienced shrinking population from 2000 to 2010. Among 343 prefecture cities, 97 cities experienced shrinking population from 2000 to 2010. Those trends may continue and will have significant impacts on regional development and reshape the future regional landscape in terms of population, economy, politics, culture, and environment. 

    This talk will present a case study of the regional dynamics of China based on the China Geo-Explorer. It will demonstrate: how to identify those counties and cities with growing or declining population from 2000-2010 in China; how to identify the difference in the population and industry structure between growing and declining regions; and, how to identify primary changes in the population and industrial/business structure of declining regions. The future potentials for the applications of China Geo-Explorer for the spatial study of global development will be discussed. 

    The webinar was presented by Shuming Bao, Director of the China Data Center & Spatial Data Center.
