Abstract: By adopting a progressive perspective of "urban form-element connectivity-socioeconomic mechanism",this paper measures the job-housing spatial structure of Xiamen city.The results show that Xiamen has highly mixed spatial characters with a monocentric job center on the island and polycentric job cluster on the bay area of the mainland.This research also examines the intrinsic spatial mechanism of daily traffic congestion in Xiamen.It is hoped that this research will provide insight into the very nature of urban form and its organizational logic behind.
