serve as a highly valued component in ecosystem and urban infrastructures.
River planning should follow basic principles of maintaining or
reconstructing the natural landscape and ecological functions of rivers.
Optimization of planning scheme is a prerequisite for successful construction
of urban rivers. Therefore, relevant studies on optimization of scheme for
natural ecology planning of rivers is crucial. In the present study, four
planning schemes for Zhaodingpai River in Xinxiang City, Henan Province were
included as the objects for optimization. Fourteen factors that influenced the
natural ecology planning of urban rivers were selected from five aspects so
as to establish the ANP model. The data processing was done using Super
Decisions software. The results showed that important degree of scheme 3 was
highest. A scientific, reasonable and accurate evaluation of schemes could be
made by ANP method on natural ecology planning of urban rivers. This method
could be used to provide references for sustainable development and
construction of urban rivers. ANP method is also suitable for optimization of
schemes for urban green space planning and design. ??
