Abstract

Based on the 2013 remote sensing data, DEM and field survey, we researched the characteristics of spatial distribution of 66 monasteries in Guoluo Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture which is located in three rivers headwater region of Qinghai province in China. By use of GIS we analyzed the differences of land use types and landscape patterns between the monasteries and the settlements with in 4 km of area. The result indicated that the monasteries in Guoluo are mainly distributed in the elevation of 4000–4500 m, and most of them stand on a slope or a gentleslope. Compared with the land use type of the settlements, the monasteries showed a more stable land use pattern.
