Article The Competition between On-Line Retail Business and Physical Retailing Store:For the Example of Youn
Author Shu-Mei Chen,Chien-Wen Peng

 As the electronic commerce become more convenient and flexible in retailing time, location and space than the physical store did, this trend makes the consumer get more sufficient information, stronger negotiation power, lower buying price, and more convenient buying process. However, the quality of product, service, and security were still suspected. This study argued that how the business model of the traditional physical store be replaced? And how is the impact for the on-line store business model? This study would discuss the compared advantages and competition relationship of these two business models from the consumers’ points of view. This study uses the survey data and the choice model to analyze the choices between the on-line store and the physical store for the young students’ preferences, and explores the key variables affected the consumers’ decisions. The results suggest that the key variables for the consumers choosing the retailing models are not the diversity of products and the commuting costs anymore, but the price, convenience, service, quality of product, and the entertainment of buying process. Further, the one among the consumers never been to the on-line store emphasized diversity and convenience more will have more preference on on-line store shopping. And we also find that the student who is male, or having more acquaintance with the Internet will also have more preference on on-line shopping. These implications would be the reference of physical retailing store and the on-line retailing business.

Article Globalization and Time-Space Reconstruction
Author Yung-Jaan Lee

 Due to the restructuring of capitalism and the new prominence of science and technology, the Informational Society has arrived. While the informational society has blurred state powers, political boundaries have transformed the time-space relationship due to the transparent and interdependent process of the global economy. Time-space transformation has been the major feature of globalization. Consequently, urban development and transformation problems have now fundamentally transformed. This work begins by analyzing the major feature of globalization, i.e. time-space transformation, to explore various globalization related urban phenomenon. Urban and rural development in Taiwan is then examined from the perspective of glocalization. Finally, this work attempts to solve future challenges in urban and rural development, namely: How should inequalities in urban-rural economic development be dealt with? What is the political economy of space? What urban patterns will guide future urban and rural development? Where do the resources supporting sustainable urban-rural environmental development come from? This work proposes that the new informational economic pattern and growing urban economic power are important trends. Consequently, urban-rural developmental problems require special attention. Specifically, urban and rural areas must cultivate appropriate niches. Only by so doing can urban and rural areas create a genuine connectivity regarding the new operational logic of globalization.

Article A Computer-Based Tool for the Evaluating of Public Facility Alternatives
Author Ching-Sheng Chiu

 In this paper, we describe a computer-based tool that planners can use to easily evaluating the alternatives of public facility plans. Section 1 is a brief review about the essential evaluating concepts of it and a short description of why a computer-based tool is necessary. Then, we describe the components, the general planning process, and the conceptual evaluating methodologies underlying it in section 2. In section 3, we describe the overall implementation of the tool involved two different issues: the interaction of the user with the tool and the interaction of the parts within the tool and the tool itself: which integrates the GIS, the user interface, the evaluating-criteria, and the problem-solving module into an evaluating assistant tool. The GIS module acts as a spatial and non-spatial data-management, visualization and spatial analysis tool. The user interface module participates a role on communicating among users and other modules. The evaluating-criteria module is used as provider of professional knowledge base of it and presents with many relational data tables. The problem-solving module is a library combined of many subroutines that can be aggregated to find the solution of evaluating problems. Finally, we describe how the tool was used to evaluate the alternatives of public facilities plans derived from an existing database of Changfua county and show its efficiency on complex and duplicated evaluating tasks, its accuracy on data manipulating and its flexibility on alternatives evaluating.

Author Hung-Nien Hsieh,Hung-Nien Hsieh,Chien-Jun Chen,Fang-Ju Chou,Chia-Huang Huang

 Under the structure of original disaster prevention system of the city, aim at the characteristic of the flood, increase the method of the flood control programming in the disaster prevention of the city. By applying with GIS system of the disaster prevention and the database of the flood scope, to distinguish the difference with original disaster prevention program. Then investigate by current conditions, to seek the shelter of the disaster prevention program. In order to establish the strong mode we use the method of interviewing and write the questionnaire. It will help us to understand that people’s viewpoint of the base strong and the programming. then we will find the right way to deal with the current conditions and develop to the future.  This research intend to regard the disaster prevention system of Taipei City as the foundation, revising and enhancing the flood control programming. And correspond from the standpoint of the flood control. By using all kind of methods to search what the people really care and what they really need.
