On the basis of sufficient understanding about the general situation of the Lu’an planning area, Anhui Province, this paper uses strengths weakness opportunity threats (SWOT) analysis to analyze the internal and external factors of the development of the planning area itself; then it analyzes the industrial cluster situation in the planning area, and uses GIS space analysis to analyze the industry status of the planning area, integrating it with the geographic space expression to provide references for formulating the economic development program of the Lu’an planning area.
Key words:Lu’an planning area; strengths weakness opportunity threats (SWOT) analysis; space mapping; economy; industry
